    General CommentIt is so funny... this song, "Love Me", and "Blue Days" have like the exact same opening few chords. It's hilarious.
    All good songs though...how can they not be? It's Buddy!

    My InterpretationI immediately thought this was about a prostitute too. However, it appears that Annie is simply cheating on her man. It doesn't make sense for her to spend his money if she's making her own at night. It sounds like she's getting dolled up to go out partying.

    General CommentI agree that she's cheating on him rather than literally working. "Slipping around" is a pretty common 1950s euphemism for cheating -- it shows up in country songs a lot.

    Song ComparisonJakob Dylan's "All Day and All Night" bears a strong resemblance to this song, especially in the first verse. I'd guess it was an intentional homage.
