Diet Mountain Dew
Lana Del Rey Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

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 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 alright

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?

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

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?

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 you
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 you, I want you

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?

Baby, stoppin' at 7-Eleven
There in his white Pontiac Heaven
Do you think we'll be in love forever?
Do you think we'll be in love?

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 (you're no good for me)
Can we hit it now low down and gritty (baby, you're no good for me)
Do you think we'll be in love forever? (You're no good for me, but, baby)
Do you think we'll be in love? (I want you, I want)

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

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

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

Overall Meaning

The lyrics of "Diet Mountain Dew" by Lana Del Rey reveal a complicated, possibly unhealthy relationship. The song opens with the repeated line "You're no good for me," indicating that the singer knows that the relationship is not healthy, yet is still drawn to the other person. The chorus is a series of questions, asking if the love will last forever. The use of the brand “Diet Mountain Dew”, is just an allusion added to the song to express a connection. It gives a sense of feeling high on love; Mountain Dew is known for its caffeine content and the song compares the feeling of being in love to the rush of caffeine. The idea that love is like a drug is further explored when the singer asks the other person to "take another drag and turn me to ashes," comparing themselves to a cigarette that the other person is smoking.


The song also contains religious imagery, with the mention of Jesus on the dashboard, which could be interpreted as the singer trying to ignore religion and any restrictions that may come with it, while they pursue their love interest. The singer seems conflicted, expressing that they know the other person is not good for them, yet they are still drawn to them. The song ends with the repeated refrain of "You're no good for me, but baby, I want you," showing the singer's struggle to reconcile their desire with the knowledge that the relationship is not healthy.
