Who sang the song with the lyric, "A cat in the cradle and the silver spoon"?

Answer

American singer Harry Chapin performed the hit song "Cat's in the Cradle," which contains the lyrics "A cat in the cradle and the silver spoon." The song was part of his 1974 album, "Verities and Balderdash," and it topped the Billboard Top 100 in December of that year.

Originally written as a poem by Chapin's wife, Sandra, the song tells the tale of a father who is too busy to spend time with his son. The song was Chapin's biggest hit since "Taxi" from his first album. It became a staple in folk rock music and continues to be a common reference in modern culture. Following the song's release, Chapin spent much of his time as a social activist fighting world hunger until his death in a car accident on the Long Island Expressway in July 1981.
