It did however, peak at in the New Musical Express charts. The idea came to Lea while he was sitting by a pool in San Diego. He completed it in the toilet in the plane on the flight home. Holder's lyrics came from a TV show he saw in San Francisco on which the band appeared, and on which a girl called Jane demonstrated a Sex Machine.

In his autobiography Who's Crazee Now?, guitarist and lead vocalist Noddy Holder explained the inspiration for the song. Jane was the co-host of a TV chat show in San Francisco they met on their US tour. They wrote the song in about half an hour, "one of the easiest songs we ever recorded". The line "Got a kick from her '40s trip boots" is a reference to her kicking Holder up the backside when the band were having a laugh at her expense
