Thanks god for reddit, the internetz and insanity.

Let's just go through the lyrics in order to prove it.

I threw a wish in the well,

Don't ask me, I'll never tell

I looked to you as it fell,

And now you're in my way

It starts off with the prostitutes introduction to her pimps. The wish in the well is a reference to her wanting to get enough money from prostitution so she can live a happy life. The second line is about how she will keep what she has done with her clients a confidential. The third line is about how the pimp is starting to get into rough times due to the prostitute not doing so well. The last line is about how the pimp is in her way of achieving her dream.

I'd trade my soul for a wish,

Pennies and dimes for a kiss

I wasn't looking for this,

But now you're in my way

Soul for a wish? Yeah, she will sell herself to achieve her dreams. Pennies and dimes for a kiss? You know exactly what that means. She sells kisses as a cheaper thing. She wasn't looking for this because she fell into hard times.

Your stare was holdin',

Ripped jeans, skin was showin'

Hot night, wind was blowin'

Where you think you're going, baby?

Now we go to her and a client. The man is staring at her because of her hot fit of ripped jeans and her provocative outfit showing her skin. The night is hot and the wind is blowing on the corner. She then questions the guy on where he is going and tries to reel him in.

Hey, I just met you,

And this is crazy,

But here's my number,

So call me, maybe?

She just met her client and the thought of prostitution is crazy. She gives him her call number so he can maybe call her for a fun night.

It's hard to look right,

At you baby,

But here's my number,

So call me, maybe?

The lady of the night has troubles looking at the man because she will possibly have sex with him in the future and is trying to picture it.

And all the other boys,

Try to chase me,

But here's my number,

So call me, maybe?

The other clients chase her because she is attractive. Then the generic lyric plays afterwards.

You took your time with the call,

I took no time with the fall

You gave me nothing at all,

But still, you're in my way

The man was hesitant to call the prostitute, but when it happened the harlot was ready to fall onto the bed to engage in casual reproduction.

I beg, and borrow and steal

Have foresight and it's real

I didn't know I would feel it,

But it's in my way

This section is about how she is poor and has to beg and steal to get things other than prostitution and how it brings her down.

Before you came into my life

I missed you so bad I missed you so bad

I missed you so, so bad

Before you came into my life

I missed you so bad

And you should know that

I missed you so, so bad

This took me the longest to figure out, but I'm going with that this is her highest paying customer, which is something she has waited for for a long time and will bring her out of her slum life.

Of course it could about Arrested Development and is Call me Maeby.

As much as it behooves me to state this, Carly Rae is not an American but a Canadian. Please keep her, just like Bieber. No in-and-out privileges either.

The narrator may be a hooker, but that's a high class hooker. The proper term is escort, sir.

It's funny because I'm not Canadian but I actually respond with "eh" to a lot of things IRL and online so people who don't know me well tend to think I am.

People see what they want to see... If you want to find death, prostitution, sex, war, satan stuff, and subliminal messages in Care Bears tv show... You will find it.

i.e Everybody ignores Batman having mental issues for looking his parents get murdered in front of him. Also he ALWAYS pick young teen kids as helpers, not to mention he always stalk them... So that means he's mentally sick and frustrated and a pedo in my book...

So meh... That song could talk or not about prostitution... Its a matter of perception.

I know a website with a girl that looks like her and she let people do that.

I could give it to you, i mean i dont judge you dude.

Dude a part is about her being a street walker, not online girl, call girl or e mail girl.

This is kind of ironic since the song is about the girl wanting to sleep with a guy that she barely knows and consequently feels like a prostitute, because any woman who wants to have casual sex is automatically a prostitute in the social conscious.

The fact that the writer of this analysis went on to call her a "harlot" because apparently she wants to achieve her dreams and is willing to sell her body is mostly just misogynistic gravy by that point.

Carly Rae is 28 years old.

Random information is random.

And this song has nothing to do with anything outside of pop music nonsense. Just superficial fun-time lyrics. Kinda creepy/funny that it generate any real discussion outside of that.
