The complete lyrics - all in good time

45 I Got Your Number

(Bradford, Gillan, Glover, Lord, Morse, Paice)
Van het Deep Purple album Bananas

Dit was één van de eerste liedjes geschreven voor Bananas in de tijd dat Jon Lord nog bij ons was. In de originele versie, toen het nog Up The Wall hete, hebben we het een paar keer gespeeld maar er moest nog wat aan gewerkt worden. Het was Michael Bradford, onze producer, die ons de juiste richting op stuurde wat betreft het refrein welke overging van swing naar strak.

I Got Your Number

(Bradford, Gillan, Glover, Lord, Morse, Paice)

So many signs
So many ways
It's a living thing
No need to rush
The buzz will last for days

When you discover
I'm just a man
Take it girl
Or leave it
Don't be reading out the label on the can

I got your number
I got your number
I got your number

I'll be your lover
I'll be your friend
I'll be your friend
And your brother in love
But that's where the story ends

If you say jump
I'll do it with affection
But don't get pissed
If I don't move
Too fast in your direction

I got your number
I got your number
I got your number

It's that same old nonsense
That same old look
But now I'm turning back
And I can read you like a book
It all means nothing
Nothing at all
It's the same old business
Man it drives me up the wall

You made that potion too strong
I feel I'm going soft
I've been that way far too long
You see, now it's wearing off

So many times
So many days
It's a spiritual thing
That loving touch
I thought you'd be amazed

I like the distance
I like the space
The money's good
The rent is cheap
And I can read suspicion on your face

I got your number
I got your number
I got your number
