Told you once before And I won't tell you no more Get down, get down, get down You're a bad dog baby But I still want you 'round
You give me the creeps When you jump on your feet So get down, get down, get down Keep your hands to yourself I'm strictly out of bounds
Once upon a time I drank a little wine Was as happy as could be, happy as could be Now I'm just like a cat on a hot tin roof Baby what do you think you're doin' to me
Told you once before And I won't tell you no more So get down, get down, get down You're a bad dog baby But I still want you 'round, around I still want you around
I don't give a damn And I'd like you if you can to Get down, get down, get down You're a bad dog baby But I still want you 'round

"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.
"The Night Chicago Died" was written and recorded by the British group Paper Lace. They talk about Al Capone in the song, but got a lot of details wrong - understandable since they wrote it based on gangster movies.
