"Back Stabbin' Betty" as written by Matt Shultz, Brad Shultz, Jared Champion, Daniel Tichenor and Lincoln Parish....
Poor guy that man John Thomas
His woman truly was a devil
And she wasn't all that honest
She tore him down on every level

You're a no good lazy motherfucker
Gotta a shit job you worthless motherfucker
You're a, a dead beat feel sorry for your mother
If I had time I'd trade you for another

He don't like that
He wants his life back
He wants to go back home

He tried so hard to please her
He sold his soul to keep her happy
But nothin' he did impressed her
She always left him feelin' shitty

This is it, no; this can't be all you bought me
Said I'm, I'm high class and this is where you brought me
Gonna strike low just like my mamma taught me
You're a, a low life you're lucky that you got me

He don't like that
He wants his life back
He wants to go back home

Down deep way down inside him
The will to leave was growin' stronger
And he bit his tongue for so long
He couldn't hold back any longer

You're a two faced ruthless instigator
You're a, a low down triflin' Masquerader
You're a, a cold bitch controllin' conversator
This is too much I'm out I'll see you later

She don't like that
But he got his life back
No she don't like that
But he's right back on track
I said he went back home

    General CommentI really like this song. It's pretty obvious what it's about..a controlling, over-bearing, ruthless instigator of a girlfriend who makes him feel like crap so he gets tired of it and basically tells her what he thinks.

    General CommentI was caught by surprise when I heard them use profanity. Didn't expect it from this band.

    My OpinionMy favorite song on the album. I love the lyricism, how it takes the old musical trope of "my girlfriend sucks" and makes it interesting, and the riffs, which sound to me a like a grungy Led Zeppelin sound.

    General CommentThis is about the other side of feminism, the one where guys get shat on.
