Meaningful Lyrics

I’m watching Much Less Music right now and a retrospective on that popular mega band of the 80’s, Def Leppard.  I can’t count how many of their songs are written without the benefit of an editor or speaker of common sense English, and I am stumped at the meaning of ‘Armageddon It’.  I think it means ‘Giv ‘er’ or ‘Punch me in the face’.

But their brilliance doesn’t stop there, check out these lyrics and guess the title of this song:

Make love/like a man/I’m a man/That’s what I am
You want it/I’m the one/I got it/I’m Mr. Fun
You need it/I’m Captain Cool

Mmmmmm, sign me up for that dating service, please.
