Arcs, The - Put A Flower In Your Pocket Lyrics




The city street is hot
The heat is escalating
Every corner in the town
There's a paycheck waiting

Put a flower in your pocket
If you seem them boy, you drop it
And you run, run

They may pretend they like you
But man's best friend will bite you
Just for fun, fun
If they're gunning for you boy, you've already won

I had a dream today
About a hustle lost
He paid his dues
Then he paid the cost

Wish I knew back then
All I know right now
Things would be much different
Than time has allowed

Put a flower in your pocket
If you seem them boy, you drop it
And you run, run

They may pretend they like you
But man's best friend will bite you
Just for fun, fun
If they're gunning for you boy, you've already won

With tired eyes and bills to pay
You gotta make it through another day
The streets can see into your soul
It ain't where ya been but where you're gonna go

Put a flower in your pocket
If you seem them boy, you drop it
And you run, run

They may pretend they like you
But man's best friend will bite you
Just for fun, fun
If they're gunning for you boy, you've already won

  47. Pintando o Sete

  48. Cauê Silva

    After Goofy died, Max went through some tough times...

  49. Pizza Cat

    Why he didnt keep uploading music?

    Matt Violet

    this band was only a side project by Dan Auerbach (from The Black Keys), so there will not be another album (although there is, at least in spotify) or song (probably). The band (The black keys) is in a hold for now, so Dan is doing some standalone projects, like The Arcs, and his last solo album "Waiting on a song". I don't know, maybe he will do something this year or next, since he hardly goes through a year without releasing something new...

  50. VictorF

    This is as if tame impala had a child with the black keys, and I love it

  51. antony Pizarro

    Is this the same lead singer from the black keys?

  52. Egor B

    Anyone knows how can I get the instrumental of this ? Thanks.

  53. sgt_KrispyBacon

    A shining star in a era of crappy music. I grew up with my dads music taste so im not into modern music

  54. 719sikora

    Great video, cool song too.

  55. bjdooi

    Dan is wildly talented, holy shit

  56. CONDUIT NOT HUMAN

  58. Sharath SH

    I just found this song and I like it a lot. What genre is this?

  59. Mochi Niccals

    They're like if Glass Animals and the Black Keys had a music baby

  60. Jessica A

    I hear 90s trip hop (the ride cymbal and snare with that bass line) along with the 70s influences. They're blending genres and making their own sound, I dig it. ❤

  61. Aasim Pasha

    Heard this song on Goliath

  62. Nathan

    Nice 10¢ pistol

  63. Novalixir

  74. William Turner

    what happened to the black keys?

  75. XxStrangexX330

    That starting beat what trap song is that from

  76. Raquel Ibarra

    I just realized when he says "put a flower in your pocket" he means a revolver.. am i wrong or did this just fly over my head?

    Jordan Barsness

    its about weed

  77. Dylan G

    This is one of Dan's smoothest numbers.

  78. FRIED CHICKEN

    I'm seriously going to get insane about this beautiful piece of music.

  79. Chris Catignani

    Good group of artists...

  80. MisterCoc12

    What kind of shit is it? Come back to Black Keys >:(

    Sanick

    MisterCoc12 shit?

  81. sloth011

    I immediately fell in love when hearing it for the first time!
    They deserve way more attention instead of all that badly produced shit which is playing nowadays...

  82. TROYE SIVAN EDITS

    Who is here because of Conan <3

  83. Kim Maii

    thANK U CONAN FOR GIVING THE BEST MUSIC CHOICE HH

  86. Matt

    Sometimes the true talent of musicians now just needs a little bit of digging to find

  87. Tyler Vietnam

    The meaning behind this is deep •O•

  88. A G

    Accidentally found these guys while on hold for Apple support haha these things happen for a reason, my best discovery yet

  89. Turtle Islander

    Such a great video!

  90. Xamito

    the voice is the same as the vocalist of Black Keys

    Matt Violet

    man, it's a joke, it's literally on the second paragraph: the arcs are DAN AUERBACH...

  91. Matt

    What happened to goofy and chewbacca, I mean they're both Disney, but why together

  92. noxgandhi

    GOLIATH

  93. Jimmy Yates

    so this songs about buyin weed and the k9 unit comin after you right?

  94. TGO5V

    There can be no doubt: The Arcs are as good as they are not because of any one member. They are a SUPERGROUP.
    I've only heard good things about the Shins and Mariachi Flor de Toloache, and I know the guys from the Daptone label are damn good musicians in their own right.

  95. TheDel365

    Goliath bought me here...

  96. Harrison Christnagel

    better love story than twilight

    Zob Rombie
