"You've Got Another Thing Comin'" as written by Robert Halford, Kenneth Downing and Glenn Raymond Tipton....
One life I'm gonna live it up
I'm takin' flight, I said I'll never get enough
Stand tall I'm, young and kind of proud
I'm on the top, but as long as the music's loud

If you think I'll sit around as the world goes by
You're thinkin' like a fool 'cause it's a case of do or die
Out there is a fortune waiting to be had
If you think I'll let you go you're mad
You've got another thing comin'
You've got another thing comin'

That's right here's where the talking ends
Well, listen, this night there'll be some action spent
Drive hard callin' all the shots
I got an ace card comin' down rocks

If you think I'll sit around while you chip away my brain
Listen I ain't foolin' and you'd better think again
Out there is a fortune waiting to be had
If you think I'll let it go you're mad
You've got another thing comin'
You've got another thing comin'
You've got another thing comin'

In this world we're livin' in, we have our share of sorrow
Answer now and don't give in, aim for a new tomorrow

Oh so hot no time to take a rest yeah
Act tough ain't room for second best
Real strong got me some security
Hey, I'm a big smash I'm goin' for infinity yeah!

If you think I'll sit around as the world goes by
You're thinkin' like a fool 'cause it's a case of do or die
Out there is a fortune waiting to be had
If you think I'll let you go you're mad
You've got another thing comin'
You've got another thing comin'
You've got another thing comin'
You've got another thing ahh

Comin' on now
You've got another thing comin'
Yeah yeah yeah yeah

You've got another thing comin'
You've got another thing comin'
You've got another thing comin'
You've got another thing comin'

You've got another thing comin'
You've got another thing comin'
You've got another thing comin'
You've got another thing comin'

You've got another thing comin'

    General CommentThis song is not about Rob’s fortune and his determination not to let it go.
    It’s more about fighting your way up to the top. It’s supposed to be a motivation for us to take the maximum out of our lives and live up to our potential. In the meantime it’s telling us not to take shit from anyone while we’re doing it.

    General CommentYou have one shot at this life. Get it right, now!

    Don't sit on your butt while the world passes you by. Take your chance, heck, MAKE your own chance. Don't let anything stand between you and your dreams.

    In a nutshell the meaning of this song is, "GO FOR IT!"

    General CommentWell...90% of everyone is correct. It's about not taking shit from anyone and doing what's necessary to keep things even with everyone and not letting anyone rule over anyone attempting to control things. If you pay attention to the video you can obviously see this...the guys holding a meter to measure the volume and their within a sound barrier area to test how loud they are and they blow his head off cause he was an agent of the government (or some funky religious right group or something maybe) trying to control Rock 'n Roll...because if you do, you've got another thing coming.
