"Prostitution Is The World's Oldest Profession (And I, Dear Madame, Am A Professional)" as written by Gabe Saporta and Patrick / Stump....
Do you know who I am?
Good, neither do I.
Got nothing to say (got nothing to say)
But if you pay me I can play the fool.

Go on, believe, if it turns you on.
Take what you need 'til your body's numb.
Prostitution is revolution.
You can hate me, until you pay me.
My submission is your addiction.
So just get out while you can.

Do you remember when the only thing that mattered was
Taking time for the things you love?
But now you've got to humor all these fools.

Go on, believe, if it turns you on.
Take what you need 'til your body's numb.
Prostitution is revolution.
You can hate me, until you pay me.
My submission is your addiction.
So just get out while you can.

If you need me I'm your man.
But you don't wanna see me mad.
Oh! No! We don't care!
You're a pro and it's no surprise, yeah.
Oh! No! We don't care!

Go on, believe, if it turns you on.
Take what you need 'til your body's numb.
Prostitution is revolution.
You can hate me, until you pay me.
My submission is your addiction.
So just get out while you can.

    General CommentI'm so confused by the last comment - I don't think it's clear at all what this song it about. It's a big metaphor for not knowing who you are anymore, selling yourself out, etc. It sure as hell isn't about prostitutes!

    General CommentIt's obviously about the music industry:

    "Do you remember when the only thing that mattered was, taking Time for the things you love?
    But now you got to humor, all these fools."

    In the beginning a career as a musician is about writing and making music because you love it and you write and sing about what is important to you. But now that they're bigger they are creating music for their fans and consumers and having to please them. It's more about business instead of about passion, just like prostitution. For a prostitute sex isn't about love it's about working and making money.

    "Go on believe, if it turns you on.
    Take what you need 'til your body is numb.
    Prostitution, is revolution.
    You can hate me, after you pay me.
    My submission, is your addiction.
    So just get out while you can"

    He's saying, buy their cds, pay for tickets to their shows, it doesn't really matter what you think of a band personally as long as your buying their merch and music and tickets. Just like a prostitute, they don't really care what their customer thinks of them as long as they pay them for the sex.
