White Stripes, The - You've Got Her In Your Pocket Lyrics



You've got her in your pocket
And there's no way out now
Put it in the safe and lock it
'Cause it's at home sweet home

Nobody ever told you that it was the wrong way
To trick a woman, make her feel she did it her way
And you'll be there if she ever feels blue
And you'll be there when she finds someone new
What to do
Well you know

You keep her in your pocket
Where there's no way out now
Put it in the safe and lock it
'Cause it's home sweet home

The smile on your face made her think she had the right one
Then she thought she was sure by the way you two could have fun

But now she might leave
Like she's threatened before
Grab hold of her fast
Before her feet leave the floor
And she's out the door
'Cause you want

To keep her in your pocket
Where there's no way out now
Put it in the safe and lock it
'Cause it's home sweet home

And in your own mind you know you're lucky just to know her
And in the beginning all you wanted was to show her

But now you're scared
You think she's running away
You search in your head for something clever to say
Don't go away
'Cause I want

To keep you in my pocket
Where there's no way out
Put it in the safe and lock it
'Cause it's home sweet home, home sweet home

  7. M Spears & Bobo Buddy the Senior Cat

    My ex said this song reminded her of me after we broke up. We were together 5 years. I just learned 2 weeks ago she hung herself a year ago! I feel broken beyond words! 😰💔

    melissa saint

    Oh Lord, Im so sorry!

  8. po1980

    you can't own someone or their feelings.

  9. Erin Murphy

    He loved her if he could control her. She loved the facade he lured her with. When she saw the pocket he kept her in, she wanted out, & he loved her more, but it was too late, her feet hit floor, & she walked out that door...

  10. Elie Elis

    Under your thumb as well

  11. Jacek Walczak

    I nic więcej na świecie

  12. swainson southern hot mess

    I would love to be in his pocket...lol thank you for being you Jack White....

  13. Mother Coconuts

    Is it a coincidence there’s no drums in this song?

    uriel vazquez

    Ohhhh men :(

  14. Adán Montalvo

    I dedicate this to the only woman who cared and actually loved me in my life but she decided to leave and go far away from me... I miss her every single day... no other woman has been able to replace her in my heart... you know I’ve tried to forget her by being with someone else but it just doesn’t work like that... with a love so beautiful, tender, sincere, and pure that she gave me... I love you my Maggie where ever you are .... I hope you’re happy no matter what ... I’m lucky to just have known you ... I love you so much .... no one will ever replace you ....

    Nessie J

    Omg i know exactly the feeling. :'(

    Estuardo Arroyo

    Man, the same thing happened to me couple months ago. I know the pain and I’m still dealing with it. Hope you finally find some hapiness after all.

    Robert Larson

    My Maggie left as well. Along time ago. This song reminds me of her

    AudioShowShow

    I think of my mom that way. Tbh i only think of her when I hear this. She didnt raise me. Out of choice. Always could have. Never answered the phone. Still to this day. It's been about 15 years since I seen her. Moral of the story is: Other than parents, expect everyone to leave. Let Maggie be a lesson. Besides, she probably wasn't all that anyway. True love doesn't, hasn't, and won't ever end in tragedy. That only happens in books. True love is hard to find. Shit, any love is... I can't even get a iLy from my mom. Now put that in your pipe and smoke it lol
    Prayers from Cali
    (BTW MAGGIE IS MY FRIENDS DOGS NAME)

  15. Sanmay Paniker

    This seems soo similar to the beatles music..😭

  16. JMagdalenaCLove Nname N

  18. No Body

  21. Benício Maniçoba

    ♥️❤️♥️❤️♥️❤️✌️

  22. Jennifer Hartranft

    The covert narcissisct's theme song... not implying JW is a narcissist in the least.

  23. jblackstock44

    Never cried so much before...

  24. martin steel

    And in your own mind you know you're lucky just to know her...

  25. John Maloney

    Watched the add. Bullshit. Rich famous people advertising stuff only they can afford.. I bet Jack White & his folks can afford the stuff the add sells. I can't I work hard too. Barely paying bills. Not watching any mor vid adds of rich famous bitches showing me things I can not afford. Like I'm supposed to feel guilty cause I am not a famous race car driver who can afford life Insurence / health Insurence / dental Insurence / sometimes gas or groceries. No more Jack White for me. No more soup for you. Thought you were one of us. Thought as I listened to your songs you were woke. Well if you were once you ain't now. Greed much.? No more White stripes for me. A bittersweet good bye. Not that you'd care. Just go back to sleep rich boy.

    Geddy Lee

    John Maloney, grow up you idiot, jack white didn’t even upload this

  26. i know i may sound gay when i say this but yeah

    I love you...

  27. Myles Vogel

    You've got her in your pocket

    Don't go away

    Where there's no way out now
    Put it in the safe and lock it
    'Cause it's home sweet home, home sweet home

    Go on to my channel and watch me do a cover

  34. Joe Steen

    So here I am in the public library at Conroe Texas and interstate 45. It's a good walk. I'm feeling more confident about coming out as a apostate of capitalism. If it's just in the passing cars and in the tombs I don't know if I can do it. My feet on the Earth in rhythmic pounding feel better to me that the prancing about of cashier registers. There is no sickness in the open air. No harm can come to you when you're embraced in the heavens. The stars like to bless those visible on Earth to their naked eyes. It's good too look up and see your home, and to look down and know your ground. Heads are on the top of our bodies, not at the feet. Those brains are growing upwards towards the sun. The Kundalini Snake within each one of us is dancing slowly, quickly and changing and learning towards the highest elevation. We are snakes blowing in the wind. Tendrils of Earths reaching out to the sun and moon. Evolution is in adaptability and adaptability comes from witnessing changing. The road is the perfect school. There is plenty in the highways, but few take the road less traveled by. It has made all the difference.

    Curtis Campbell

    Joe Steen ...ok..
