The Steve Miller Band Lyrics. I heat up, I can't cool down You got me spinnin' 'Round and 'round 'Round and 'round and 'round it goes Where it stops nobody knows. Every time you call my name I heat up like a burnin' flame Burnin' flame full of desire Kiss me baby, let the fire get higher. Abra-abra-cadabra I want to reach out and grab ya Abra-abra-cadabra Abracadabra. I heat up, I can't cool down My situation goes 'round and 'round I heat up, I can't cool down My situation goes 'round and 'round I heat up, I can't cool down My situation goes 'round and 'round.

Steve Miller was always catchy and tuneful, but he never turned out an unabashed pop album until 1982's Abracadabra.

The Steve Miller Band were the hottest thing on American radio, and in record stores, in the late summer of 1982. Now, the new hit was succeeded at No. 1 by the same band’s ‘Hard To Say I’m Sorry. ‘Abracadabra’ had two non-consecutive weeks at the summit, becoming a gold single, and also hit No. 1 in Australia, Austria, Canada, Sweden and Switzerland. It reached No. 2 in the UK, becoming the band’s only top ten hit there in July 1982, held off the top only by Captain Sensible’s ‘Happy Talk’ and then Irene Cara’s ‘Fame.

But abracadabra, just like that; the Steve Miller Band reclaimed the spot for one more week!!! {That's two total weeks at and 25 weeks in the Top 100}. Esskayess from Dallas, TxSMD made a lot of great songs. Kara from Cadillac, MiThe first prominent rock band that Ross Valory appeared in was the Steve Miller Blues Band when their album Rock Love was released in September 1971. Still have not verified if Valory actually wrote the lyrics to Abracadabra. Kara from Cadillac, MiI heard (or read) somewhere that Ross Valory of Journey actually wrote the lyrics to this song.
