The Raincoats
The Raincoats


Una canzone che racconta di un processo per stupro in cui il responsabile, un ufficiale dell'esercito, fu trattato con particolare indulgenza perchè non fosse compromessa la sua carriera militare...
Just a couple in the park
Pounding out those games in the dark
Those who walk past her screams
Are only reminded of love’s young dreams
A scuffle, violating arms
Can only prove the strength of his charms

Woman, you’re pinned up
On the wall in front of you
A soldier’s life is very tough
Needs tender loving when fighting’s through

Join the professionals,
The professionals

Yes they’re really strangers in the night
Oh they’re saying to me if you put up a fight
It’s not just a kiss you owe me
It’s all this ammunition loaded
I bought you a drink
And well, we’re walking hand in hand

Woman, you’re pinned up
On the wall in front of you
A soldier’s life is very tough
Needs tender loving when fighting’s through

Save the professional,
The professional(s)

Seaside town, off-duty trip
Taking flesh, going to let it rip
With rings on his finger,
Sharp like the taste that still lingers,
Flavor of this month — center spread
57 Page Three varieties in his head . . .

Woman, you’re pinned up
On the wall in front of you
A soldier’s life is very tough
Needs tender loving when fighting’s through

Join the professionals, save one of the professionals,
No, no jail for the professional.
