"Ride Sally Ride" as written by and Lou Reed....
Sit yourself down
Bang out a tune on that grand piano
Sit yourself down
Lay languidly down upon that sofa

Ooh, isn't it nice
When your heart is made out of ice

Ride, Sally, ride
It's not your time or way of confusion
Ride, Sally, ride
'Cause if you don't, you'll get a contusion

Ooh, isn't it nice
When your heart is made out of ice

Sit yourself down
Take of your pants, don't you know this is a party
Sit yourself down
Why do you think we brought all these people, miss brandy

Ooh, isn't it nice
When you find your heart's made out of ice

Ride, Sally, ride
It's not your time, it's just your confusion
Ride, Sally, ride
It's not your time, you'll get a contusion

Ooh, isn't it nice
When you find your heart is made out of ice

(Ride, sally ride)
(Ride, ride, ride, ride, Sally ride) Ride, Sally, ride
(Ride, ride, ride, ride, Sally ride) Hey, ride, Sally, ride
(Ride, ride, ride, ride, Sally ride) Ride, sally, ride
(Ride, ride, ride, ride, Sally ride, Oh-oh-oh, oh)
(Ride, ride, ride, ride, Sally ride, Hey-hey-hey, hey-hey)

    General CommentClearly about sex, at least in my opinion, but not sure what he is saying about Sally and sex.

    "Oooh isn't it nice, when your heart is made out of ice
    Ride, Sally, ride
    It's not your time or way of confusion
    Ride, Sally, ride
    'Cause if you don't, you'll get a contusion
    Oooh isn't it nice, when your heart is made out of ice"

    It sounds like Sally may be a virgin and she's having sex for the first time, but she might not be ready. Or perhaps after her first experience she figured out she doesn't like guys and she likes girls better. Not sure, but there seems to be a thread of both inexperience and indecision throughout the song.

    I'm not sure if the contusion means Sally is being threatened or he's talking metaphorically. Like the confusion is going to hurt her head.
