I’ve Got a Problem with Authority

Chords: G C D   Verses: G C A

I’ve got a problem with authority

I’ve got a problem with the police

They like to bother me 

When I’m walking down the street

They ask a lot of questions 

And when I try to answer

They get real mad at me

Then they beat me

I’ve got a problem with authority 

I don’t like the judge or DA

They never give a fair trial

Or a trial at all

Or let me state my case

I’ve got a problem with authority 

My right to counsel is a joke

Five minute sessions shackled 

In an orange jumpsuit  behind bars

In front of everyone in a courtroom 

I’ve got a problem with authority 

Because I can’t afford a lawyer

To protect me from this shit

The rich man walks on a murder charge

The poor man has to take it

The Bill of Rights is a lie

Unless you can buy it

I’ve got a problem with authority 

And it’s not only just me.       

Authority for the sake of authority 

Is tyranny
