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

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 grinnin'
Well I fight authority, authority always wins

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
Oh, and dying to me don't sound like all that much fun"

And so 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 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

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