    QuestionThis song is told in the second person, directed to "you", a person (I always assumed a man) waking up with a woman ("you seem to have forgotten her name").

    After the chorus, and we get the information that it had been a "one night stand".

    But then in the last part, this person ("you") walks up to "our front door", and has come up with the lie of sleeping at Mary Lou's, but Mary Lou is there and cries when she hears the lies. The only way that sleeping at Mary Lou's would be a good alibi is if "you" was a woman, and the singer is a man. So was the "you" a woman? And had she slept with a woman? Was the one-night stand a same-sex encounter?
