"She Shook Me Cold" as written by and David Bowie....
We met upon a hill, the night was cool and still
She sucked my dormant will
Mother, she blew my brain, I will go back again
My god, she shook me cold

I had no time to spare, I grabbed her golden hair
And threw her to the ground
Father, she craved my head, oh lord, the things she said
My god, she should be told

I was very smart
Broke the gentle hearts of many young virgins
I was quick on the ball, left them so lonely
They'd just give up trying
Then she took my head, smashed it up
Kept my young blood rising
Crushed me mercilessly, kept me going around
So she don't know I crave her so-o-o

I'll give my love in vain, to reach that peak again
We met upon a hill
Mother, she blew my brain, I will go back again
My god, she shook me cold

    General Commentthiis is a song about a man who takes advantage of women but has met his match and finds himself needing her mostly in a sexual way, the hill or peak is probably climax

    mother, she blew my brain
    i will go back again
    my god, she shook me* cold

    and threw her to the ground
