        Sit yourself down
        bang out a tune on that grand piano
        Sit yourself down
        lay languidly down upon the sofa

        Ooohhh, 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

        Ooohhh, isn't it nice
        when your heart is made out of ice

        Sit yourself down
        take off your pants, don't you know this is a party
        Sit yourself down
        why do you think we brought all these people, Miss Brandy

        Ooohhh, 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

        Ooohhh, 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)
