You and me are in a lot of trouble
And somebody's gonna burst our bubble
Your husband
My wife
My marriage
Your life

Let's go to Maine out on the East Coast
Let's go to Maine right now
Let's beat the retreat
Let's hop on the plane
Let's get out of here
Let's go to Maine

Someone knows what's going on
Someone knows, and someone's gonna tell
Someone's gonna wrap us up in styrofoam and paper
And mail us flat-rate right down to Hell

    Song MeaningSounds like a pair of adulterers fantasizing about running away from their respective marriages. Very happy tune though.

    "You and me are in a lot of trouble
    And somebody's gonna burst our bubble"
    They have something good that is unsustainable and will get them in trouble.

    "Your husband
    My wife
    My marriage
    Your life"
    Their respective marriages. If they are caught, the girl will lose her husband and her life, probably implying that her husband is abusive. The guy will lose his wife and his marriage, which is self-explanatory.

    Chorus: Runaway fantasy.

    "Someone knows what's going on
    Someone knows, and someone's gonna tell
    Someone's gonna wrap us up in styrofoam and paper
    And mail us flat-rate right down to Hell"
    Someone knows their secret, and if their secret gets out, they're royally screwed. And adultery is a sin.
