I have been singing this song for years. I have always introduced it as a song about a sister taking care of her mentally handicappped brother. I am not sure why. because I like the husband wife story better. but somehow I got the previous story from a reliable source. Maybe I need to keep it as ambiguous as Michael obviously intended.
