The actual word for lie is "uso" not "usou". The kanji is "嘘" and the hiragana for it is "うそ". When used in an exclamation, it may sound as if the second syllable is longer and emphasized.

My Japanese friends use "uso" all the time. I think I hear guys say it more than girls, but it's used by both genders. Comment by: PoliSci
