BJ:

But we're BFFFs FOREVER!
 
B+A:

Lyd:
What? He was already dead!
And you heard what he said, any ghost can do that possession stuff
We don't need that demon, the three of us alone can wreck dad's evening
Together we can make a grown man weep
Guys I gotta dinner date to keep
 
A:
Okay, so what's the plan?
 
Lyd:
Teach dad a lesson, he's gonna freak when we possess him
So he wants the perfect daughter
I'll lead that lamb to slaughter
