I got a pocket for my keys, a pocket for my cash
One for my ticket in case I got to leave town fast
My favorite pocket, you know the one I'm thinking of
Is the pocket in my heart for your love?
The pocket in my heart for your love

I got a pocket for my pen, one for my book
A pocket for my glasses when I got to get a better look
But my favorite pocket, said it from the start
Is the pocket for your love inside my heart?
The pocket for your love inside my heart

Before I met you, baby
I had a pocket full of cares
Last time I looked
There wasn't any there

I got a pocket for my comb, a pocket for my candy bar
One for my passport when I'm traveling that far
But my favorite pocket fits just like a glove
Is the pocket in my heart for your love?
The pocket in my heart for your love

Since I met you, baby
I've been having so much fun
Writing love songs
And this one's almost done

I got a pocket for my watch a pocket for my silver flask
One for my wallet with the family photographs
And my favorite pocket, said it from the start
Is the pocket for your love inside my heart?
The pocket for your love inside my heart

I got a pocket for my cough drops, a pocket for my handkerchief
Before I gave it up, I had a pocket for my split
And my favorite pocket, you know the one I'm thinking of
Is the pocket in my heart for your love?
The pocket in my heart for your love

I'm talking about the love pocket
Love pocket, I got it, love pocket

    My InterpretationA simple song about what we use our pockets for and he then contrasts all these physical pockets with what he describes as, "the pocket for your love inside my heart". Eric Bibb is a performer with many 'feel good' songs and a range of stories which lift your spirits.

    Throughout the song he tells us about pockets for his keys, cash, tickets, pen, book, glasses, comb, candy bar, passport, watch, silver flask, wallet, cough drops and handkerchief but it's the metaphorical pocket in his heart for her love which he cherishes most. A jaunty little number on the simple things in life and ultimately what is the most important pocket.
