When I was young my dad would say
Come on son let's go out and play

No matter how hard I try
No matter how many tears I cry
No matter how many years go by
I still can't say goodbye

Mustang Sally, guess you better slow that Mustang down.
Mustang Sally, now baby, guess you better slow that Mustang down.
You've been running all over town.
Uh, I guess you gotta put your flat feet on the ground.

Sing it to them one more time, girls.

All you want to do is ride around, Sally (ride Sally ride) - come on.
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).
Tell you ... one of these early mornings,
I'm going to be wipin' those weeping eyes - yeah, yeah.

All right ... I bought you a brand new Mustang.
It was a 1965.
Now you come around signifying a woman.
Girl, you won't, (ain't gonna let me ride) you won't, let me ride.
Mustang Sally, now baby (Sally, now baby),
guess you better slow that Mustang down (down).
All right ... you've been running all over town.
Ow, guess you gotta put your flat feet on the ground.
Oh yeah baby got to put your flat feet ...

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) - ah yeah.
All you want to do is ride around, Sally (ride Sally ride).
One of these early mornings,
I'm going to be wipin' those weepin' eyes - yeah, oh, yeah babe ... come on hos.

Those weepin' eyes, oh, yeah babe (Sally)
Those weepin' eyes (Sally), yeah, yeah
Those weepin'eyes (Sally), yeah, yeah
Oh, those weepin' eyes
Those weepin' eyes (Sally)
Those weepin' eyes (Sally), yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
