1987 [Interview/MV] Duran Duran – Meet El Presidente, Skin Trade

Meet El Presidente

Miss November Tuesday
Bend your rubber rules
Take your time, but don’t take
Off your high heeled shoes
She’s in demand at dinner time
She’s on the factory wall
And when the gentlemen retire
Guess who’s in control?
She blew your money
On taking a cruise
If that isn’t funny
Well, watch out teacher

Ooh, ooh. When the chamber’s empty
She said ooh, ooh, Meet El Presidente.

Dressed in flimsy clothing
Use your lipstick line
To colour fear and loathing
With a pink disguise
You’ve never refused when she lies back
Put a stripe on the union; and a star on the jack
She’s on the case at dinner time
She’s on the evening news
And if you dare step out of line
You’re going to be abused
You may not like it
You may not be scared
But hell has no fury like a
Young girl’s ego

Ooh, ooh. When the chamber’s empty
She said ooh, ooh, Meet El Presidente.

Ooh, ooh. Doo, doo, doo
You might adopt an attitude
Look on the moral side
But if police are after you
Where’s the best place to hide?
For this production
They gave her a gun
Ain’t no director–
So watch out actors!

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
