"Authority Song" as written by and John Mellencamp....
Let's go!

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, its a total disgrace

And I say when I fight authority, authority always wins
When I fight authority, authority always wins
I been doing it, since I was a young kid
And Ive come out grinning
When I fight authority, authority always wins

Well 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 I say when I fight authority, authority always wins
When I fight authority, authority always wins
I been doing it, since I was a young kid
And Ive come out grinning
When I fight authority, authority always wins

Oh no!

I fought the law, and the law one [Repeat: x4]
Hey!

When I fight authority, authority always wins
When I fight authority, authority always wins
I been doing it, since I was a young kid
And Ive come out grinning
When I fight authority, authority always wins

And I say, when I fight authority, authority always wins
When I fight authority, authority always wins
I been doing it, since I was a young kid
And Ive come out grinning
When I fight authority, authority always wins

Hey!
