About Get Your Number

"Get Your Number" is a song by American singer and songwriter Mariah Carey. It was written by Carey, Jermaine Dupri, Johntá Austin and Bryan-Michael Cox, and produced by the former two and LRoc. It was released as the third international single from Carey's tenth studio album, The Emancipation of Mimi (2005). The song is built around a sample of "Just an Illusion" (1982) by British band Imagination. Due to the inclusion of the sample, several other writers are credited as songwriters. Lyrically, the song features the protagonist persistently asking for the phone number of an individual at a club. The song received generally mixed reviews from music critics at the time of its release, with many both praising and criticizing the inclusion of the sample, as well as the song's production and lyrical content. "Get Your Number" was released as the third single throughout Europe, where it peaked within the top-ten in Finland, the Netherlands and the United Kingdom, where it was sold as a double A-side along with "Shake It Off". Similarly, the song found release in Australasia in early 2006, as the fifth single from the album, and peaked in the top-twenty in Australia, and at number thirty-four in New Zealand.

Oh damn
The club 'bout to close in a minute
Can I get your number, baby
So you and I can go get in it
Let me come and pick you up, oh
And go take you out, oh
Can I get your number, baby
So I can show you what I'm all about
What I'm all about, damn

I've been checkin' you out
And I noticed that you ain't just one of the crowd
So tell me won't you
Come on and see about me, baby
I've got the Cris on ice and I'm 'bout to get nice
Up in VIP with all my ladies
Tell me how many times in your life
Will you get an opportunity like this tonight
Tell me a little somethin' about you
Here's a little somethin' about me
I got a house in Capri and my own G4
And that Benz with the doors that lift up from the floor

Oh damn
The club 'bout to close in a minute
Can I get your number, baby
So you and I can go get in it
Let me come and pick you up, oh
And go take you out, oh
Can I get your number, baby
So I can show you what I'm all about
What I'm all about, damn

Now that you're sitting next to me
I bet you're wondering
What my intentions are for you
And I to get into
Baby, I just want to
Hug and kiss and love ya
Look into my eyes, baby, don't be shy
Is it yes or no
We ain't got all night
Tell me how many times in your life
Will you get an opportunity like this tonight
Tell me a little somethin' bout you
Here's a little somethin' bout me
I got a pimp penthouse with a sick hot tub
We can watch the flat screen
While the bubbles fill it up

Oh damn
The club 'bout to close in a minute
Can I get your number, baby
So you and I can go get in it
Let me come and pick you up, oh
And go take you out, oh
Can I get your number, baby
So I can show you what I'm all about
What I'm all about, damn

La, la, la, la, la, la
