Don’t bring Tom,

from F. Scott Fitzgerald – The Great Gatsby (Chapter V) on Rap Genius

Meaning

Jay Gatsby wanted to reconnect with Daisy and this would not be possible if Tom, Daisy’s husband, came along to tea. By not having Tom present, Gatsby and Daisy will not have interference and Gatsby will be able to reveal his feelings and see if Daisy still feels the same.
