The Cats in the Cradle - MMO Version

My kid bought WoW just the other day
She logged in the game in the usual way
But there were planes to raid, and dragons to slay
She learned to game while I was away

And she was guilded fore you knew it and as she grew
She'd say, "I'm gonna be like you, dad
You know, I'm gonna be like you"

And the Overlord needs me to go and kill Varsoon
The Ethernaughts are coming and we gotta make room
"When you loggin out, dad?" "I don't know when
But we'll get together then, kid, you know we'll have a good time then"

My daughter dinged 50 just the other day
She said, "Thanks for the rig, dad, come on and let's play
Can you make a new toon?" I said, "Not today
I gotta kill Varsoon" she said, "That's okay"

And she walked away but her smile never dimmed
She said, "I'm gonna be like him, yeah
You know, I'm gonna be like him"

And the Overlord needs me to go and kill Varsoon
The Ethernaughts are coming and we gotta make room
"When you loggin out, dad?" "I don't know when
But we'll get together then, kid, you know we'll have a good time then"

Well, she hit max level just the other day
So much like her mom I just had to say
"Hon, I'm proud of you, can you sit for a while?"
She shook her head and she said with a smile

"What I'd really like, dad, is The Wrath of the Lich King
See you later
Going to get that thing!"

And the Overlord needs me to go and kill Varsoon
The Ethernaughts are coming and we gotta make room
"When you loggin out, hon?" "I don't know when
But we'll get together then, dad, We're gonna have a good time then"

Well, I've long since stopped playing, my daughter moved away
I called her up just the other day
I said, "I'd like to see you if you don't mind"
She said, "I'd love to, dad, if I could find the time"

"You see, we're going after C'Thun and the guild is a zoo
But it's sure nice talking to you, dad
It's been sure nice talking to you"

And as I hung up the phone, it occurred to me
She'd grown up just like me
My girl was just like me

And the Overlord needs me to go and kill Varsoon
The Ethernaughts are coming and we gotta make room
"When you loggin out, hon?" "I don't know when
But we'll get together then, dad, we're gonna have a good time then"

 

Original Song "Cat's in the Cradle" by Harry Chapin, Parodied by Jesad

Did it make you cry at the end? ;)

This parody was inspired by a post I saw the other day on this very site.  It was a WoW player asking if there was any game out there that could give him the same sense of adventure and discovery that WoW had given him.  I couldn't help but chuckle just a little bit as I realized that the WoW kids are now becoming the old farts just like me and the rest of my codger crew.

I say welcome though.  Welcome!

Just like in game, we may level at different speeds but one thing remains the same. 

We all will meet up at endgame.

At least, that is my understanding.

Jesad.
