Flapper Girl
The Lumineers Lyrics


Cut off all of your hair
Did you flinch, did you care
Did he look, did he stop and stare
At your brand new hair
Local boy, local news
Power lines, hangin' boots
Firemen in their trucks cut loose
A local boy's shoes

Cadillac, Cadillac
Businessmen dressed in slacks
I'm gonna buy one for us when I get back
A big Cadillac

And you can wave to all of your friends
And I'll never leave you again

Would you write, would you call back baby if
I wrote you a song
I been gone but you're still my lady
I need you at home

Romeo, Juliet
Balcony silhouette
Makin' o's with her cigarette
It's Juliet

Flapper girl, flapper girl
Prohibition in curls
Hair of gold and a neck of curls
It's flapper girl

And you can wave to all of your friends
And I'll never leave you again

Would you write, would you call back baby if
I wrote you a song
I been gone but you're still my lady
I need you at home

If you ain't behind my door
Then I ain't got a home anymore

Would you write, would you call back baby if
I wrote you a song
I been gone but you're still my lady and
I need you at home

Lovers come, lovers go
Lovers leave me alone
She'll come back to me

Cut off all of your hair
Did you flinch, did you care
Did he look, did he stop and stare
At your brand new hair
Local boy, local news
Power lines hangin boots
Firemen in their trucks cut loose
A local boy's shoes

Cadillac, cadillac
Businessmen dressed in slacks

I'm gonna buy one for us when I get back
A big cadillac

And you can wave to all of your friends
And I'll never leave you again

Would you write would you call back baby if
I wrote you a song
I been gone but you're still my lady and
I need you at home

Romeo, juliet
Balcony in silhouette
Makin o's with her cigarette
It's juliet

Flapper girl, flapper girl
Prohibition in curls
Hair of gold and a neck of pearls
It's flapper girl

And you can wave to all of your friends
And I'll never leave you again

Would you write would you call back baby if
I wrote you a song
I been gone but you're still my lady and
I need you at home

Cause if you ain't behind my door
Then I ain't got a home anymore

Would you write would you call back baby if
I wrote you a song
I been gone but you're still my lady and
I need you at home

Lovers come, lovers go
Lovers leave me alone
She'll come back to me

This song makes me feel like i'm a 40s housewife waiting for her husband to come back from war

@Arkidie ur bad at Fortnite

RAFAEL GAHAN

@Arkidie Oh ok i understand just a miscommunication

Arkidie

@De boss I understand now, but the person said that's how they feel like while listening to the song so why correct them on the way they feel?

Arkidie

@RAFAEL GAHAN I was talking about how the original comment said the song made them feel like a 40's house wife waiting for their husband to come home from the war which is why when the person corrected to 20s it didn't make sense to me since no major wars were really happening.

We didn't realize we were making memories, we just knew we were having fun.

I feel like the Lumineers are from a different time

ANDREW LAWRENCE

This song has the strange ability of coming back into my life at times when I need it.

Burt Gaming

The Lumineers have a very 1970’s vibe to their music. Such an underrated band honestly
