"867‒5309/Jenny" is a song written by Alex Call and Jim Keller and performed by Tommy Tutone that was released on the album Tommy Tutone 2, on the Columbia Records label. It peaked at number four on the Billboard Hot 100 chart and number one on the Billboard Top Tracks chart in 1982.[1] Co-writer Call came up with both "Jenny" and the telephone number and completed the song with Keller.[2]

CreationEdit

"There was no Jenny," songwriter Alex Call told a Tampa, Fla., columnist in June 2009. "The number? It came to me out of the ether." However, on March 28, 2008, Tommy Tutone lead singer Tommy Heath stated on the WGN Morning News that the number was real and it was the number of a girl he knew. As a joke, he wrote it on a bathroom wall in a motel they were staying at. "We laughed about it for years," he said.[3]

LyricsEdit

Jenny, Jenny, who can I turn to
you give me something that 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
I wanna know you cause you'd 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, got it
I got your number on the wall
got it, got it
for a good time, for a good time call

Jenny I've 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
(867-5309)
Jenny, Jenny, you're the girl for me
(867-5309)
