Father & Son - ( Cat Stevens Cover )

Lyrics & Chords

Father
Its not time to make a change,
Just relax, take it easy.
Youre still young, thats your fault,
Theres so much you have to know.
Find a girl, settle down,
If you want you can marry.
Look at me, I am old, but Im happy.

I was once like you are now, and I know that its not easy,
To be calm when youve found something going on.
But take your time, think a lot,
Why, think of everything youve got.
For you will still be here tomorrow, but your dreams may not.

Son
How can I try to explain, when I do he turns away again.
Its always been the same, same old story.
From the moment I could talk I was ordered to listen.
Now theres a way and I know that I have to go away.
I know I have to go.

Father
Its not time to make a change,
Just sit down, take it slowly.
Youre still young, thats your fault,
Theres so much you have to go through.
Find a girl, settle down,
If you want you can marry.
Look at me, I am old, but Im happy.

All the times that I cried, keeping all the things I knew inside,
Its hard, but its harder to ignore it.
If they were right, Id agree, but its them you know not me.
Now theres a way and I know that I have to go away.
I know I have to go.

That was a pretty good rendition Sumit. You have concentrated on the diction and pitch very well, and its come out great.
Try more of such numbers. Its suits your voice.

Awesome Sumit… 5/5 from me!!!

Anirban said

Sumit – Firstly 5/5 to you and I think this is your best yet!! Amazing song selection and confident rendition!! There was an issue with the tempo of the vocals versus the track in the first para but then you caught up pretty quick!

Nice one man!! I would advise you to sing more such songs (scale and pitch wise). They suit you!!

Please listen to my recent uploads –
Main Koi Aisa Geet Gaau – Yes Boss
Kal Ho Na Ho
Maa – Taare Zameen Par
Your feedback will be of great help.

Agree with Anirban. This is your best. Part of the reason is the scale. This is the perfect range for u. So good job on the song selection. Its important to find your comfort zone Sumit, and I think you’ve found it with this song. So now try to find songs similar to this and build on your strength. Once you are past that stage, you can experiment. Great work! 5/5 from me man.

Satyajit Sahu said

Great Stuff, Sumit! Who performed the bground music?
Like someone said, may be a bit efx on the vox may bring it up a bit. Though it sounds great without it too. Haven’t heard the original. Would like if you try some parts with a harmony or so.
Will be lookin fwd to hear more from you.
cheers,

Life’s a lot like jazz…. its best when you improvise!

Sumit Rai said

Thanks Satyajit :-) the background music is from the karaoke track :-) i am always thinking whether how much effect to put on my vox sometimes i put too much , so decided keep this one to minimum, i will try n put harmonies in future renditions :-) Thanks for listening n feedback :-)
