1987 [M/V] Duran Duran – Notorious, Skin Trade (Ibiza 92)

May 30, 1987 (Ibiza, Spain)

Notorious

No-no-Notorious. Notorious. Ah. No-no-Notorious

I can’t read about it
Burns the skin from your eyes
I’ll do fine without it
Here’s one you don’t compromise
Lies come hard in disguise
They need to fight it out
Not wild about it
Lay your seedy judgements
Who says they’re part of our lives?

You own the money
You control the witness
I’ll leave you lonely
Don’t monkey with my business
You pay the prophets to justify your reasons
I heard your promise,but I don’t believe it
That’s why I’ve done it again. No-no-Notorious

Girls will keep the secrets (uh)
So long as boys make a noise
Fools run rings to break up
Something they’ll never destroy
Grand Notorious slam (bam)
And who really gives a damn for a flaky bandit?
Don’t ask me to bleed about it
I need this blood to survive

You own the money
You control the witness
I’ll leave you lonely
Don’t monkey with my business
You pay the prophets to justify your reasons
I heard your promise,but I don’t believe it
That’s why I’ve done it again. No-no-Notorious

You own the money
You control the witness
I’ll leave you lonely
Don’t monkey with my business
You pay the prophets to justify your reasons
I heard your promise,but I don’t believe it
That’s why I’ve done it again. No-no-Notorious

You own the money
You control the witness
I’ll leave you lonely
Don’t monkey with my business
You pay the prophets to justify your reasons
I heard your promise,but I don’t believe it
That’s why I’ve done it again. No-no-Notorious

That’s why I’ve done it again. No. No
That’s why I’ve done it again. No-no-Notorious
That’s why I’ve done it again. No-no-Notorious
No-no-Notorious. Yeah
That’s why I’ve done it again. No-no-Notorious
No-no-Notorious. Yeah
That’s why I’ve done it again. No-no-Notorious
No-no-Notorious

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
Takes 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
It’s 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 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
