Rene came up with an idea for a song about "Backseat Betty", a woman who gets men to take her to "Lookout Point" or whatever you want to call those old makeout spots. Once there she exacts her revenge on the male species for something horrible that happened to her a long time ago. Rene had sent a little text message to Annelise about the idea and she had lyrics and a chord structure done two days later.

lyrics

Now that I've got you all alone
Up in these mountains you can't use your phone
Right where I want you in the back seat
Boy, you've got to slow down just like your heart beat

See, there's a problem with that mind of your own
I like them submissive, so please lower your tone
Sit back relax and enjoy the ride
I'll give you lovin' that you can't deny

Cause I'm Backseat Betty
I'll do more than petting
I'll love you to death, till you can't catch your breath, and your heart isn't making a sound
Another one down

You give me cold kisses that shiver my spine
I like that the last lips that you kiss alive are mine
You didn't see it coming that slight of hand
Cause I'm in control now I bet you understand

Cause I'm Backseat Betty
I'll do more than petting
I'll love you to death, till you can't catch your breath, and your heart isn't making a sound
Another one down

Calling me baby and pinning me down
The weight forces me to feel tied and bound
Wanting to go home, but you ignored my cries
The night that Backseat Betty arrived

Cause I'm Backseat Betty
I'll do more than petting
I'll love you to death, till you can't catch your breath, and your heart isn't making a sound
Another one down
