Skin Trade
Duran Duran Lyrics


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 knew what she'd think, 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
You've got steel, it's so cool,
Get angry at the weekend then 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 you 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.
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.
Would someone please explain...
The reason for this strange behaviour
In exploitation's name...
We must be working for the skin trade.
Would someone please explain...
The reason for this strange behaviour
In exploitation's name...
We must be working for the skin trade.

It's hard to believe that this brilliant song did not do so well in charts back in 1986

It had A LOT of competition. Particularly in that year

John Taylor's bass playing ability is criminally underrated.

Chris simpson

I can actually hear every instrument in this brilliant song.

Green Isaac II

That's because it has full dynamic range

@GJD I believe your right, and that's a wonderful fact. Hope your new year was good. Bless you, and God bless America, my home., I have been listening to Duran Duran since 1985. I mainly listen to Rock and Blues. I sing Rock as well, check my page out, it's mostly cover songs though of my favorite bands and Artists.🇱🇷
