They sound German, maybe Russian? I was just wondering if anyone knew- it's been bothering me lately...

It definitely sounds like German to me, but I have no idea what that stuff.
I think someone said which song it was from, not so long ago.

i dont think its Russian, but if it is another language I would guess German or any other funny Western European langauge. But chances are that Def Leppard just made it up or were high when they thought of that.

It's on the audio track too, you friggin' dip.

And yeah, it's out of a Def Leppard song and doesn't have a hidden English meaning. It sounds German or Eastern-European in general if anything, not Spanish like this turd mentioned.

I believe Def leppard said it was just njibbberish in an interview once. btw, I believe the song is called "Rock of Ages" if I'm not mistaken.

it's definetly not german, the first word sounds a bit like "montag" what means "monday" but the rest is crap. it sounds like spoken by a vogon...

it sounds like "unter lieben laufen lwen" or "lwin"... that's always what it sounded like to me (lwen is pronounced like loe-vin). And that doesn't make any sense- that translates to "under love run lion's den" (or female lion instead of lion's den). It definitely sounds german, but I have a feeling DL didn't know german and they were just trying to put something on the song that sounded cool and didn't make sense.

gunter= a name probably not "gunter" but "unter" which means "under'

glieben= not a word. probably not "glieben" but "lieben" which means "love"

glauchen= not a word. probably not "glauchen" but "laufen" which means "run"

globen= probably "loben" which means "praise" or "compliment"

Where did you read that's what it says at the beginning?

i searched on the web for the lyrics to the def leppard song and they came out on quite a few of the websites i looked at

Are you stupid? We're not talking about the "uno dos tres" part.

Def Leppard does not sound like Offspring.

that's strange... cause none of the words they listed were german words, but all of them are very close to german words... maybe they wanted it to sound german but have it be nonsense.

Def Leppard sounds like the offspring????????? :confused: Umm yes, 80s hair metal "pour some sugar on me" sounds like 90s pop punk?? Holy shit, what are you smoking? Sorry, I don't mean to get pissed off and insulting, but The only similarities is that they're bands made up of guys and have both been pop bands at some point. That's about where the similarities really end.

And why does everyone think we're talking about the "uno dos tres" part when the topic of this thread is "FIRST LINES IN PRETTY FLY". The beginning of the song.
