Song Lyric Sunday 2/11/18 – 867-5309/Jenny

Songs about phone calls. Haha. Forgive me for going totally cliche for this week’s Song Lyric Sunday but damn, what better song to feature for the theme?

For whatever reason, I’ve always found this song amusing. Apparently there was no Jenny and the numbers were pulled out of the songwriter’s ass but it’s still a hilarious and fun song and I feel sorry for anyone who has the misfortune of having this phone number.

With that, let’s take a trip down memory lane as we crank up Tommy Tutone’s classic 1981 hit “867-5309/Jenny” (written by Alex Call and Jim Keller).

Hey!

Jenny, Jenny, who can I turn to?
You give me somethin’ I can hold on to
I know you think I’m like the others before
Who saw your name and number on the wall

Jenny, I got your number
I need to make you mine
Jenny, don’t change your number

867-5309
867-5309
867-5309
867-5309

Jenny, Jenny, you’re the girl for me
Oh, you don’t know me, but you make me so happy
I tried to call you before, but I lost my nerve
I tried my imagination, but I was disturbed

Jenny, I got your number
I need to make you mine
Jenny, don’t change your number

867-5309
867-5309
867-5309
867-5309

I got it, (I got it), I got it
I got your number on the wall
I got it, (I got it), I got it
For a good time, for a good time call

Hey, Jenny, don’t change your number
I need to make you mine
Jenny, I call your number

867-5309
867-5309
867-5309
867-5309

Jenny, Jenny, who can I turn to?
867-5309
For the price of a dime I can always turn to you
867-5309

867-5309
867-5309
867-5309
867-5309

(5309) 867-5309
(5309) 867-5309
(5309) 867-5309

  1. Another classic choice for this theme! I always felt so bad for girls named Jenny when this song hit the top of the charts. Sherry, Jenny, Amanda, there were so many names you just did NOT want to have in the 80’s!
