Lyrics

Well, they like to get you in a compromising position Well, they like to get you there and smile in your face Yeah, they think they're so cute when they got you in that condition Well, I think it's a total disgrace [CHORUS] 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 come out grinning Well, I fight authority, authority always wins

I called 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 And dying to me don't sound like all that much fun” [repeat CHORUS] 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 been doing it since I was a young kid and I come out grinning Well, I fight authority, authority always wins Well I fight authority, authority always wins I fight authority, authority always wins I been doing it since I was a young kid and I come out grinning Well, I fight authority, authority always wins [FADE]
