Default Packing up, shacking up is all you wanna do

I know this has been discussed, but I want to know sure about the meaning of Packing up, shacking up is all you wanna do

Stevie was upset with this quote. Dreams was positive but GYOW no, she said, and this quote offended her. Though she did sing it anyway, during the gigs.

But what does it mean? (remember I'm spanish speaking). I heard it means like she only wanted to have fun and didn't take seriously the relationship, is that correct?

I always thought that it meant all Stevie wanted to do was sleep around

not sure how the "packing up" part fits in, but "shacking up" pretty much means living together and having intimate relations, but not married

maybe it's supposed to lead everyone to believe that Stevie didn't want to commit to Lindsey in some way

I remember her saying that every time she had to sing that line she just wanted to leg it across the stage and throttle him.

Ah, love.

That's just Lindsey being macho and not allowing Stevie to help him put on the spare when they got a flat tire on the way to the studio.

I always took it to mean that he was 'packing up' and leaving because all she wanted to do was live together and not get serious/get married. ??

I think the "packin' up" is directed at Stevie as well as "shackin' up" because of the meaning someone else mentioned above - she doesn't want to commit. She always wants to "pack up" when things get bad and when they're good, all she wants to do is "shack up" without real commitment. Makes you wonder if Lindsey proposed and got turned down. Stevie did say once that he was upset because she didn't want to be his wife.

Wasn't the original line 'crackin' up, shackin' ups all you wanna do?

I've seen an interview in which Stevie says the whole sentiment of the song was 'mean' because he was telling her to go away. She went on to say "And I never shacked up with anyone while I was with him" which suggests she took it as a reference to sleeping around.

I believe Stevie is re-characterizing his words as accusations of infidelity so she can come out as the sweet innocent falsely-maligned victim, when he never actually intended it that way. Otherwise, she would have to say "Well, yeah, I did only want to shack up because Stevie Nicks is a free spirit and no man can possess Rhiannon! She must be able to take to the sky at will!" Doesn't come off as sympathetic that way.

If that line were directed at you, I imagine you'd take it as an insult just like Stevie did. I know I sure would!
