yes, it is about a hitman. but the inspiration for the song actually came from a cartoon character in the show "Beany and Cecil", that angus watched as a kid. the characters name was "Dishonest John", and he handed out business cards that said "dirty deads, done dirt cheap. sundays and holidays, special rates"

This song is about a hitman, and his line of work. He (Bon Scott)asks of the problems and introduces himself and what he does. "you having trouble with your highschool head, he's giving you the blues" "pick up the phone I'm always home call me anytime, just ring 36 24 36 I lead a life of crime" And it goes on to tell about the price of deed is not expensive.

I think it's a hitman offering to kill a high school principal to stop people from having to become whores to graduate.

I've heard the idea for this song partially came from a t.v cartoon character that gave out business cards that said ''Dirty Deeds Done Dirt Cheap'', special rates on Holidays and Sundays. All together it seems that this honest song came to be passed on and about a High School dropout kid who may still had a caring need to help his friends out that remembered the number given to him that became programmed in his head. Willing and offering his phone number to any of them, if and when they're in need for any kind of help and relief from the pain of broken hearts they might have endured in and out of High School.
