On this sonic letter to his son, whose point of view is also featured in the song, Cat Stevens contrasts the restlessness and wanderlust of youth with the cautiousness of old age. Singing in a higher register for the son's lines ("It's always been the same / Same old story / From the moment I could talk / I was ordered to listen"), he uses a lower one to get his own perspective across ("It's not time to make a change / Just relax, take it easy / You're still young, that's your fault / There's so much you have to know / Find a girl, settle down / If you want you can marry / Look at me / I am old, but I'm happy"). Guitarist and friend of Cat Stevens Alun Davies steps in to provide backing vocals on one of the English singer-songwriter's best-known tunes, released in 1970 and featured on his fourth studio album, Tea for the Tillerman, which also contained his signature hit, "Wild World."
