Throw 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 that has a rich vein of rhyming slang that has become relatively common parlance.

'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. 


The entire album listing is included for completeness, but only songs with a link have explanations.

Volume 1: Essence
