I thought the song was just playful banter between a male and a female. Coy and flirtatious.
It is. In fact, the woman has the power to leave anytime she wants, and has the power over her own sexuality to stay if she wants -- even if staying
makes her mother and father upset.
The woman in the song is her own woman, and does not need to give into the whims of her family over her own decisions on sex.
That's why on one hand she says
My mother will start to worry -
Father will be pacing the floor -
So really I'd better scurry...
but then comes back with her own excuse to stay...
Maybe just a cigarette more
(or sometimes the lyric is "half a drink" more)
So yeah. The woman in the song is independent minded and making her own decisions, despite what her family might think.
The guy is just making his case for her to stay, which I don't see as a problem. That part called flirting (on both sides).
