Authority Song Lyrics

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

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

I call up my preacher
I say, "Gimme 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
And dying to me don't sound like all that much fun", and so I'll say

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

I say, oh no, no no
I say, oh no, no no
I say, oh no, no no no
I fight authority, authority always wins
I fight authority, authority always wins (kick it in)
I've been doing it since I was a young kid
And I come out grinnin'
Well, I fight authority, authority always wins

Well, I fight authority, authority always wins
Well, I fight authority, authority always wins
I've been doing it since I was a young kid
And I come out grinnin'
Well, I fight authority, Authority always wins
So I said
I fight authority, authority always wins (oh no)
Well I fight authority, authority always wins (oh no no)
Well I've doing it since I was a young kid (oh no)
