"Mustang Sally" as written by and Bonny Rice....
Mustang Sally, think you better slow your mustang down
Mustang Sally, think you better slow your mustang down
You been running all over the town now
Oh! I guess I'll have to put your flat feet on the ground

All you want to do is ride around Sally, ride, Sally, ride
All you want to do is ride around Sally, ride, Sally, ride
All you want to do is ride around Sally, ride, Sally, ride

One of these early mornings, oh, you gonna be wiping your weeping eyes
I bought you a brand new mustang 'bout nineteen sixty five
Now you come around signifying a woman, you don't want to let me ride
Mustang Sally, think you better slow your mustang down
You been running all over the town now
Oh! I guess I'll have to put your flat feet on the ground

All you want to do is ride around Sally, ride, Sally, ride
All you want to do is ride around Sally, ride, Sally, ride
All you want to do is ride around Sally, ride, Sally, ride

    General CommentIts about a slut. replace the word 'mustang' with 'sex' and read through it. Pretty obvious i thought.

    General Commentits really about a car. the mustang was popular at the time this song was written. A broad behind the wheel of one gave the impression she was wild. she's running around town with it and he's not invited to ride along. (aka he's not invited for fast times on the road and in bed)

    Song MeaningSir Mack Rice's song was about his drummer friend's desire to be bought a 1965 Mustang by Della Reece for whom he was playing. The joke was that the drummer was unambitious (flat-footed) as others in the band desired bigger and more practical cars like Cadillacs . Rice teased the drummer with a nursery rhyme: "Little Sally Walker sitting in a saucer,Ride, Sally, ride!". The song was based on the rhyme .

    General Comment“Mustang Sally” began as “Mustang Mama,” which he was inspired to write by the newly introduced Ford Mustang sports car. It was Aretha Franklin, the pianist on Mr. Rice’s demo of the song, who persuaded him to rename it.
