Authority Song

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

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

Kinda like The Clashs "I fought the law"

One of my favorite John Cougar Mellencamp songs! I remember listening to this song when I was younger, and I heard it on the radio the other day, and my head just popped with remembering the beat.

Guitars!!!
This is music! One the best artists to ever in my opinion. I can actually relate to most of his songs. Long live the COUGAR!
The story of my life in a title ...
I used to think it was "I find authority in that and I always will."
"Growing up leads to growin old and then to dying, and dying to me dont sound like that much fun" I still quote that when people talk about growin up...
Mellencamp was one of the few cool things to come out of the 80's
Akbar and Jeff might say, "Could this be a re-working of 'I Fought The Law?'"

"Maaaaaybe."
Great rock song
If Eric Cartman sang this song, he'd say, "i fight authoritah, authoritah always wins", and he'd call it "Authoritah Song".
