Lyrics
Just a couple, in the park
Handing out those games in the dark
Those who walk past her screams
Are only reminded of love's young dreams
A scuffle while in his 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)
Join the professionals (the professionals)
Join the professionals (the professionals)

Yes they're really strangers in the night
Or they're saying to me if you put up a fight
It's not just a kiss you owe me
With 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 professionals)
Save one more professional (the professionals)
Save one more professional (the professionals)

Seaside town, off duty trip
Taking flesh going to let it rip
With rings on his fingers
Shone like the taste that still lingers
Flavor of this month's center spread
Fifty-seven page three barracks is 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

No jail for the professional (the professionals)
No jail for the professional (the professionals)
No jail for the professional (the professionals)
