“Little Does She Know” by Kursaal Flyers

Kursaal Flyers’ “Little Does She Know” is a song about the narrator’s unfaithful lover.  More specifically, as the title infers initially she is not aware that the singer knows of her “cheating” ways. However, he does eventually catch her red-handed in a laundromat, the setting in which the latter half of the lyrics take place. But there is no confrontation, for upon realizing she has been discovered she “made it for the street like a hare”. In other words, she quickly fled the scene. And underneath this entire narrative is apparently a sentiment of remorse on behalf of the vocalist for having a girlfriend who is seeing another dude.
