From the recording I DON'T KNOW ANYTHING: An Album in Three Acts
UNKNOWN NAME, UNKNOWN NUMBER (Music and Lyric by Louis Rosen)
Wrapped in the peace of a sweet, deep dream — a peace only sleep can bring. A church bell rang a familiar song, and I woke to my ring-tone’s ring.Unknown name, unknown number — such a sweet dream to lose. Got the “Unknown Name, Unknown Number Blues”.
I met my dream girl on Friday night — a bar in some swank hotel. The bets were off and the game was on; but you know what broke the spell? Unknown name, unknown number — such a sweet spell to lose. Got the “Unknown Name, Unknown Number Blues”.
When the world’s gone cold and you feel the sting, and you need a friend, and what a friend can bring, much to your surprise, your phone may ring, but it’ll be someone tryin’ to sell you some damn thing…
Tonight I dreamt that life’s a dream — searched heaven for some sign. Got so confused that I called myself, and my voice came on the line. Unknown name, unknown number — Man, that really lights my fuse. Got the “Unknown Name, Unknown Number Blues”.The “Unknown Name, Unknown Number Blues.”
