"'''Diet Mountain Dew'''" (alternatively registered as "'''Diet Mtn Dew'''") is a song written by [[Lana Del Rey]] and [[Mike Daly]], and produced by [[Emile Haynie]] and [[Jeff Bhasker]] in 2012. It was released on Del Rey's first major-label studio album ''[[Born to Die (album)|Born to Die]]''.
 
 
==Background and composition==
 
In May 2010, music blog sites began posting reviews of the third demo of the song alongside speculation around Del Rey's upcoming album. The track was met with generally positive reviews. The song is in B♭ minor with a tempo of 88 BPM. The track features motif of a rising then falling scale on the piano accompanied with soaring strings and hip-hop beats that are typical of the other tracks on the album. The track is generally upbeat, and lyrically the song centers on Del Rey asking a man whether they will "be in love forever". There is an overarching theme of drug use.

You're no good for me,
 
Baby, you're no good for me.
 
You're no good for me,
 
But, baby, I want you, I want.
 
 
Diet mountain dew, baby, New York City,
 
Never was there ever a girl so pretty.
 
Do you think we'll be in love forever?
 
Do you think we'll be in love?
 
 
Diet mountain dew, baby, New York City,
 
Can we hit it now, low down and gritty?
 
Do you think we’ll be in love forever?
 
Do you think we’ll be in love?
 
 
Baby, put on heart-shaped sunglasses,
 
'Cause we gonna take a ride.
 
I'm not gonna listen to what the past says,
 
I've been waiting up all night.
 
 
Take another drag, turn me to ashes,
 
Ready for another lie?
 
Says he's gonna teach me just what fast is,
 
Say it's gonna be all right.
 
 
Diet mountain dew, baby, New York City,
 
Never was there ever a girl so pretty.
 
Do you think we'll be in love forever?

Can we hit it now, low down and gritty?
 
Do you think we’ll be in love forever?
 
Do you think we’ll be in love?
 
 
Let's take Jesus off the dashboard,
 
Got enough on his mind.
 
We both know just what we're here for,
 
Saved too many times.
 
 
Maybe I like this roller-coaster,
 
Maybe it keeps me high.
 
Maybe, the speed, it brings me closer,
 
I could sparkle up your eye.
