Threw Me Out

'Two's a crowd'
Rich Harding pointed out this line is based on the popular idiom, 'two's company, three's a crowd': a group of two people is comfortable; a group of three is not.

'No more trouble No more strife'
'Trouble and strife’ is Cockney rhyming slang for ‘wife’. Cockney is a working class dialect from the East End of London.

'Opening drawers'
Rich also made the point that 'drawers' means the storage device but is also also an anachronistic term for a lady's underwear, typically of a long shorts style in silk, and may therefore be an admission of adultery, fitting in with the theme of the piece.
