From their first word, to their first game, to graduation day, you invest in every moment 
"TD Ameritrade - Cat’s in the Cradle"

Voiceover / Dialog / Script / Spoken Word

(Lyrics) My child arrived just the other day 
He came to the world in the usual way 
But there were planes to catch and bills to pay 
So I moved my meeting, son walked that day 
And he was talkin' 'fore I knew it, and as he grew 
He'd say "I'm gonna be like you, Dad 
You know I'm gonna be like you" 
My son turned ten just the other day 
He said, "Thanks for the ball, Dad, come on let's play 
Can you teach me to throw", I said "Right away. I got stuff to do that can wait today." 
And he ran outside and smiled ear to ear 
And said "I'm gonna be like you, Dad 
You know I'm gonna be like you" 
Well, he came from college just the other day 
He said "I can't thank you enough for paying my way. What I'd really like dad, is to borrow the car keys, take you dinner and discuss my dreams" 
Soon I'll retire, my son's well on his way 
He came by with a question just the other day 
"I need your advice dad with what to do when I become a father just like you. Become a father just like you." 
And the cat's in the cradle and the silver spoon 
Little boy blue and the man on the moon 
When you comin' home, Dad 
I'll be home in ten, and we'll get together then 
You know I'll have a good time then
