This song is about a woman who lives a double life. During the day, she buttons up and puts in her eight hours at work, all the while thinking about the night, when she can satisfy her prurient desires. Her thrills come in the night, but she never lets on.
Paul Stanley of Kiss wrote this song with Jean Beauvoir, who was an early member of the band Plasmatics. He produced the Ramones albums Animal Boy (1986) and Brain Drain (1989).
"Abracadabra" was inspired by Diana Ross and The Supremes. Steve Miller first met the girl group when they performed together on NBC's Hullabaloo in 1966, and he wrote the lyrics after spotting Diana Ross skiing in the mountains years later.
