"Ring Of Fire" as written by Robert John Lange, Stephen Maynard Clark, Philip Kenneth Collen, Richard Savage, Joseph Elliott and Richard John Cyril Allen....
Fun girl, you tempted me, a feast of sparks
In the night is what I need
Ooh I'm a-ready to roar, and I'm a-ready for more
And I'm a-ready to burn like the light into the dawn

Oh I gotta see the fire in me, turning into ecstasy
So stick around and settle down enjoy the mystery
A voice in the wilderness, there's somethin' in the air
A little love won't bring your precious self a secret flame

Fun girl
(Are you ready, ready for fun girl?)
Feels like fire
(Are you ready, ready for fun girl?)
Ring of fire

I left, so indiscreet, you're stealing all of the fire
Electric me
I'm staring into the sun, I'm staring into a gun
I'm staring at the sky, turn it out and let it burn

Fun girl
(Are you ready, ready for fun girl?)
Feels like fire
(Are you ready, ready for fun girl?)
Ring of fire

Fun girl, you tempted me, ya cut me up
Like a knife so tenderly
Oh I gotta see the fire in me, burning up my ecstasy
A little love won't bring your precious self a secret flame.
Oh no

Fun girl
(Are you ready, ready for fun girl?)
Feels like fire
(Are you ready, ready for fun girl?)
Ring of fire

Yeah yeah yeah yeah
Oh

    General Commentyeah, these lyrics are wrong. i looked up the lyrics on def leppard's official website. so here they are, corrected.

    "Thunder, you're tempting me
    A feast of spice in the night is what I need
    Ooh I'm a-ready to roar
    And I'm a-ready for more
    Well I'm a-ready to burn like the light into the dawn

    Oh I gotta see the fire in me turning into ecstasy
    So stick around and settle down, enjoy the mystery
    A voice in the wilderness, there's somethin' in the air
    A hidden love, forbidden pleasure, suffer secret pain

    Thunder
    Are you ready, ready for burnin'
    Feels like fire
    Are you ready, ready for burnin'
    Ring of fire

    Heartless, so indiscreet
    You're stealing up from behind, a raging heat
    I'm staring into the sun
    I'm staring into a gun
    I'm stirring up a storm
    Turn it on and let it burn

    Oh I gotta see the fire in me
    Turning into ecstasy
    So stick around and settle down
    Enjoy the mystery
    A voice in the wilderness
    There's somethin' in the air
    A hidden love, forbidden pleasure, suffer secret pain

    Thunder
    Are you ready, ready for burnin'
    Feels like fire
    Are you ready, ready for burnin'
    Ring of fire
    Are you ready, ready for burnin'
    Oh, feels like fire
    Are you ready, ready for burnin'
    Ring of fire

    Thunder, you tempted me
    Ya cut me up, like a knife so tenderly

    Oh I gotta see the fire in me
    Burning up my ecstasy
    A hidden love, forbidden pleasure, suffer secretly

    Oh no
    Are you ready, ready for burnin'
    Feels like fire
    Are you ready, ready for burnin'
    Ring of fire
    Are you ready, ready for burnin'
    Feels like fire
    Are you ready, ready for burnin'
    Ring of fire"

    i also noticed that the opening guitar riff of this song is almost straight off of ozzy osbourne's "crazy train". great song, though.

    i highly doubt that it's about eating mexican (or indian) food and having bad gas, as the lyrics as a whole don't seem to support it. it seems to be about, as letmein says, a girl who just wants to have fun, but the singer wants something deeper.

    well, there's my two cents. enjoy

    General CommentDepends on which lyrics you want to sing this song is one of those songs that have two set of lyrics in one song depending on how you listen to it. The "Are you ready, ready for fun girl", can be heard as "Are you ready, ready for burning. The "burning" part of this song was written about how they were eating mexican food and had bad gas.

    General CommentThe "fun girl" is avoiding anything deeper and the singer would like to have her actually fall in love with him.
