"Flower" is a song by American singer-songwriter Liz Phair from her 1993 debut album Exile in Guyville. It is about the singer's infatuation with an adolescent male she regularly sees, and explicitly describes her sexual attraction and fantasies about him.
The song first appeared on one of her Girly Sound tapes. The song was later covered by Pansy Division on their 1995 album Pile Up. The Industrial Power Noise band Caustic covered the song on their 2007 release Booze Up And Riot: Hangover Edition featuring Victoria Lloyd of the band Claire Voyant singing vocals.
Like many of the tracks on Guyville, "Flower" features only Phair and her guitar. However, the guitar has been distorted to sound somewhat like a wind instrument.
