Phil Collen - Take What You Want Song Commentary

Phil Collen - "Because of the intro, it actually sounds like the start of an album, so it became an obvious track to open with."

Phil Collen - "Rick Savage pretty much done all the music for this one, and I think had the title—and then Joe wrote the lyrics."

Phil Collen - "It represents the rock side of Def Leppard that came a bit later. I want to say that I almost hear the New York Dolls in there as well."

Def Leppard Take What You Want - Lyrics Sample

Life's complicated
Love it or hate it
I'm in this to win
You don't have to believe it
Take it or leave it
Just let it begin

From two different worlds
We come crashing in It's like a brand new day
Still shoulder to shoulder
Soldier to soldier
So show me the way
