††† ††D††††††††††††††† †††††††††††††††††††††††††G†† †††††††A†††††††††† D†††††† - G - A

1. Oh, they like to get you in a compromising position,

††††D†††††††††††††††††††††††††††G††††††††††† ††A††††††† †††††††D††††- G - A

††† they like to get you there and smile in your face.

††††††††††††††††††† D††††††††††††††††† ††††††††††††††††††††††††††††G†††††††††††† ††A†††† ††††D††† - G - A

Well, they think theyíre so cute when they got you in that condition,

†††††††† ††D†††††††††††††††† G A††††† †††D†††††† G††††† A

††† well, I think itís a total disgrace, and I said:

 

D†††††††††††††††††††††† †††††††G†††† A††††††††† D††† - G - A

I fight authority, authority always wins,

††††††† D††††††††††† ††††††††††††††††††G††† ††A ††††††††††D††††† - G - A

well, I fight authority, authority always wins.

††††††††††††††††††††††††† D††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† G†††††††††††††††† A††††††††††††† D††††† - G - A

Well, Iíve been doing it since I was a young kid, I come out grinniní,

†††† ††D†††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† G†††† A†††††††††† D††††† - G - A

well, I fight authority, authority always wins.

 

+D - G - A (2x)

 

††† †††††††D††††††††††††††† †††††††††††††††G††††††††† ††††††††††††A†††††††††† ††††D††††† †††- G - A

2. So I call up my preacher, I say: give me strength for round five,

†††† ††††††††††††††D††††††††††††††††††††††††††† G†††† ††††††††††††††††††††††††††A†††††††††† D†† - G - A

††† he said: You donít need no strength, you need to grow up, son.

†††††††††††††††††† D†††††††† ††††††††††††††††††††G††††††††† †††††††††††††A††† †††††D††††† - G - A

††† I said: Growing up leads to growing old and then to dying,

††††††††††††††† ††††D††††††††† ††††††††††††††††G††††† †††††††A†††††††††††††† ††††D††† G†††† A††

††† ooh, and dying to me donít sound like all that much fun, so I said:

 

+CHORUS†† +instrumental = CHORUS

 

†††† †††††††D†††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† D
