skin trade
working on the weekend, baby 
she's working all through the night 
a jump into the deep end gave her 
the evidence she required 
take five she's got pearls 
don't fake it when it comes to making money 
so she smiles but that's cruel 
if you know what she thinks 
if you knew what she was after 

sometimes she wonders 
and she laughs in her frustration 

would someone please explain 
the reason for this strange behaviour 
in exploitation's name 
we must be working for the skin trade 

doctors of the revolution gave us 
the medicine we desired 
besides being absolutely painless 
it's a question of compromise 
they got steel 
so cool to get angry at the weekend 
and go back to school 
so big deal it's what rules 
when it comes to making money 
say yes, please, thank you 

sometimes you wonder, and ask yourself the question 

would someone please explain 
the reason for this strange behaviour 
in exploitation's name 
we must be working for the skin trade 

i know the answer, but i'm asking you the question 

would someone please explain 
the reason for this strange behaviour 
in exploitation's name 
we must be working for the skin trade
