Authority Song

John Cougar Mellencamp

    A D E A D E [A]They like to get you in a compromising position
A D E A D E They like to get you there and smille in your face
A D E A D E They think, they're so cute when they got you in that condition
A D E A D E Well I think, it's a total disgrace

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

So I call up my preacher I say: gimme strenght 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

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

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

Oh no
Oh no
I fight authority, authority always wins

Chorus (with clapping):
I fight authority, authority always wins
I fight authority, authority always wins
I been doing it, since I was a young kid
I've come out grinnin'
I fight authority, authority always wins

(back to uke):
I fight authority, authority always wins
I fight authority, authority always wins
I been doing it, since I was a young kid
I've come out grinnin'
I fight authority, authority always wins
