Rikki Don't Lose That Number
by Steely Dan

We hear you're leaving, that's okay
I thought our little wild time had just begun
I guess you kind of scared yourself, you turn and run
But if you have a change of heart

Rikki don't lose that number
You don't want to call nobody else
Send it off in a letter to yourself
Rikki don't lose that number
It's the only one you own
You might use it if you feel better
When you get home

I have a friend in town, he's heard your name
We can go out driving on Slow Hand Row
We could stay inside and play games, I don't know
And you could have a change of heart

Rikki don't lose that number
You don't want to call nobody else
Send it off in a letter to yourself
Rikki don't lose that number
It's the only one you own
You might use it if you feel better
When you get home

You tell yourself you're not my kind
But you don't even know your mind
And you could have a change of heart

Rikki don't lose that number
You don't want to call nobody else
Send it off in a letter to yourself
Rikki don't lose that number
It's the only one you own
You might use it if you feel better
When you get home

If you’re into this music then there’s no way you can have a peanut brain.

I knew a lil' girl named Rikki back when we were kids in the 70's, who lost her life, saving her lil' brother from being struck by a car, it unfortunately struck and killed her, in 1976, hearing this Steely Dan classic always makes me think of her, R.I.P. Rikki...

Ya know, you're makin' me cry right now...(!)

@ShadowsGathered a number was slang for a tab of LSD.
