This is most likely a reference to the song How Can I Miss You When You Won’t Go Away? by the band Dan Hicks & His Hot Licks. The song was on their self-titled debut album (also referred to as Original Recordings) which was released in 1969 by Epic Records. Dan Hicks’ musical style combined elements of folk, jazz, and country incorporated with a sense of humor.

This phrase is often used in a humorous way to tell people that the speaker would like some space to appreciate them more.
