"Rock Of Ages" as written by Robert John Lange, Steve Clark, Joseph Elliott, Peter Willis, Richard John Cyril Allen and Richard Savage....
Gunter gleiben glauchen globen
All right
I got somethin' to say
Yeah, it's better to burn out
Yeah, than fade away
All right
Ow gonna start a fire
C'mon

Rise up gather round
Rock this place to the ground
Burn it up, let's go for broke
Watch the night go up in smoke
Rock on Rock on
Drive me crazier, no serenade
No fire brigade, just pyromania (c'mon)

What do you want, what do you want?
I want rock 'n' roll, yes I do
Long live rock 'n' roll
Oh let's go, let's strike a light
We're gonna blow like dynamite
I don't care if it takes all night
I gonna set this town alight, c'mon

What do you want, what do you want?
I want rock 'n' roll, alright
Long live rock 'n' roll

Rock of ages, rock of ages
Still rollin', keep a-rollin'
Rock of ages, rock of ages
Still rollin', rock'n'rollin'
We got the power, got the glory
Just say you need it and if you need it
Say yeah
Heh heh heh heh
Now listen to me

I'm burnin', burnin', I got the fever
I know for sure, there ain't no cure
So feel it, don't fight it, go with the flow
Gimme, gimme, gimme, gimme one more for the road

What do you want?
What do you want?
I want rock 'n' roll, You betcha
Long live rock 'n' roll

Rock of ages, rock of ages
Still rollin', keep a-rollin'
Rock of ages, rock of ages
Still rollin', rock'n'rollin'
We got the power, got the glory
Just say you need it and if you need it
Say yeah
Say yeah
We're gonna burn this damn place down
Down to the ground
Heh heh heh heh heh heh heh heh heh heh

    General CommentNo way I'm the first to comment on this song? Wicked. This is a great song, with Rick Allen's randomness at the beginning, which makes it different. I think this song's meaning is that Def Leppard are gonna keep "rocking thru the ages" so to speak, not stopping, and as the times move on Rock is gonna heat up, hence the burning, dynamite, pyromania (link to their album) references. It also talks about how Rock is guna crush ne and all opposition.

    General CommentWhy is this not being commented on anymore than this. Thsi song is like one of Def Leppards best. And Captain Pyro im pretty sure that is a match being lit in the backround.

    General CommentThis is my favorite Def Leppard song...it's just so freakin' awesome and Allen's wonderful gibberish at the beginning makes it different from all their other songs.

    I don't know why, but the chorus of this song is one of my favorites from any song ever.

    "Rock of ages, rock of ages,
    Still a-rollin', keep a-rollin',
    Rock of ages, rock of ages,
    Still a-rollin', rock n' rollin'."

    Absolute masterpiece for Def Leppard, and it's the song that got me into them.
