"Another Hit And Run" as written by Rick Savage, Richard Allen, Steve Clark, Peter Willis and Joseph Elliott....
Union Jack is back
With a hole in his head
He's gettin' badly
Burned every time

He's laughin' at me
And dancin' on my sneakers
And his sixties songs
Are blowin' up my speakers

I say you got no respect
Respect for authority
You're just playing your dirty tricks
And then come cryin' to me

Hit and run, hit and run
It's just a hit and run
Another hit and run

The bulldog's lost his bite
And his breath has gone bad
And now the whole damn world
Is really laughin' mad

I say you got no respect
Respect for authority
You're just playing your dirty tricks
And then come cryin' to me

Hit and run, hit and run
It's just a hit and run
Another hit and run, hit it

Oh, bring it down
Oh, you bring me down

I said you ain't got no respect
Said you ain't got no respect
No you ain't got no respect
And you hit me when I'm down

Hit and run, hit and run
It's just another hit and run
I said it's just another hit and run

Oh yeah, hit and run
Hit and run, hit and run
Hit and run, hit and run
Hit and run, it's just another hit and run
(Hit and run)
Hit and run

    Song MeaningOkay, I am the lead singer for Hysteria, a tribute band for Def Leppard out of Dallas (or Sheffield, TX, as we refer to it). I like knowing the meaning behind each of their songs, and this one is a bit of a mystery. Here is my take for what it is worth.

    When Def Leppard got off of their On Through The Night tour opening for AC/DC and others, they returned to England to find poor reviews of their music. Remember that Mutt Lange what not in the picture then, and they were simply guided by their influence of Led Zep, AC/DC, Queen, Bad Finger, etc. I think that the two British references in the song (Union Jack and the Bulldog) are referring to themselves. To me, this song is about them taking criticism from the music industry and the backlash of their own English fans upset by the perception that the band was trying too hard to appeal to American audiences by recording songs like "Hello America" and touring more in the US. Once Mutt helped them find their successful sound, this song was created to answer back.

    Union Jack is back with a hole in his head (**the band's pride being hurt from the bad reviews)
    He's gettin' badly burned every time (**same thing)
    He's laughin' at me and dancin' on my sneakers (**same thing)
    And his sixties songs are blowin' up my speakers (**could be saying that the radio didn't embrace them)

    I say you got no respect
    Respect for authority
    You're just playing your dirty tricks
    And then come cryin' to me (**to me, this bridge is saying you should have trusted our vision, now that we are charging forward musically. Mutt got it, so why didn't the critics.)

    The bulldog lost his bite and his breath has gone bad (**They lost their stride until Mutt came along)
    And the whole damn world is really laughin' mad (**The World was less than impressed)

    That is my take, but I could be way off. Anyone have a better take on this?
