Some flowers grow wild
"Pansy" by Brett Matthew West

I left the lounge down at the Nassau Hotel
I couldn't sleep and said, "Fare thee well"
I walked along the sidewalk 'neath overgrown trees
Singin', pickin' pansies, swayin' in the evenin' breeze
I was surrounded, one copper said, "That's him. Come with us you know it's 4am."
They are gonna get you. See, they got a curfew
And, you are gonna go to the Nassau City Jail

They tossed me in the car and drove back to town
I asked, "Just where the hell are we bound?"
Emptied my pockets, took blue pills and pocket knife
They told me to shut up. I knew I was in for life
Locked me in a cell and went home for the night
"Come here you S.O.B. this ain't right!"
They are gonna get you. See, they got a curfew
And, you are gonna go to the Nassau City Jail

I paced back and forth. Now and then I would yell
And kicked my Gucci's against my cell
I walked awhile. I kicked awhile. Nobody came.
At the crack of dawn they still hadn't taken my name
Free to go, I said, "Give me them things of mine."
They gave me a pansy on a line
They are gonna get you. See, they got a curfew
And, you are gonna go to the Nassau City Jail
