Remember Kids, The Only Good Cop Is A Dead Cop

John Cougar Mellencamp - Authority 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

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

So 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


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 say oh no (no no)
I say oh no (no no )
I say oh no (no no no)

I fight authority and authority always wins
I fight authority and authority always wins (kick it in)
well i've doing it since i was a young kid
i've come out grinin'
well i fight authority and 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

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
