John Mellencamp – Authority Song lyrics

Written by: John Mellencamp

Oh, they like to get you in a compromising position
They like to get you there and smile in your face
Well, they think they're so cute when they got you in that condition
Well I think it's a total disgrace
And I said:

Chorus:
I fight authority, Authority always wins
Well, I fight authority, Authority always wins
Well, I've been doing it since I was a young kid
I come out grinnin'
Well, I fight authority, Authority always wins

So I call up my preacher
I say, "Give me strength for Round 5."
He said, "You don't need no strength, you need to grow up son."
I said, "Growing up leads to growing old and then to dying"
"OO and dying to me don't sound like all that much fun."
So I said:
Chorus

I said Oh no no no (3X)
I fight authority Authority always wins
chorus (Reeapt several times)
