I assumed he was mainly referring to an actual magic trick, thus the use of that word.
"...Smith said the opening line of the song ('Show me, show me, show me how you do that trick') refers to his childhood memories of mastering magic tricks, but added 'on another [level], it's about a seduction trick, from much later in my life'..."

I agree about that verse, and I've assumed that she just wanted to take him away from whomever he learned and practiced his 'tricks' on {#Devil_pimp}

Now that's a great Lazarus-like comment! 

I came here to say that, only in the last few years, did I realize this was a different song than "Friday I'm in Love" - and while that song is OK, this one here is freaking awesome and I just now bumped it to a 9.  If not for the sonic similarities to that other one I might even go to a 10.  I just adore songs with a storyline....something more than just words that rhyme.  LONG LIVE RP!!

Been a 10 for me since the day I first heard it, still a 10 today - many years later.

Reminds me of a girl back then - no longer; ended as abruptly as this song...

I noticed that the Cure's live gigs attract a wide diversity of people. 50+ men like me but also teenage girls.This is one of the songs that had them dancing like, well like only young girls can. Until then they made me think they were at the wrong concert.
