45 I Got Your Number

(Bradford, Gillan, Glover, Lord, Morse, Paice)
From the Deep Purple album Bananas

This was one of the first songs to be written for Bananas, back when Jon Lord was still with us. In its original form, when it was called Up The Wall we performed it a couple of times, but it needed a little more work, and it was Mike Bradford, our producer, who pointed us in the right direction, regarding the chorus which shifted from swing to straight time.

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
