5. Yeah, it's pretty condescending.
Great melody, though. That descending chord sequence just before the chorus, played on piano, gets me every time.

I still think the songs he did for "Harold and Maude" are his best work. Especially "Trouble."

Anyone who'd dismiss early seventies singer-songwriters because they're....early seventies singer-songwriters, and well.....Lester Bangs said they were uncool, MAAAN, then they're missing out on great tune-smithery.

I was the drummer in a riot grrrl band in New Orleans with a girl who told me that she couldn't stand Jimi Hendrix because his constant references to some female and her "little mind." She said his dimunition of said female was sexist and refused to listen to him. She also said that she shummed any song sung by a male where the male calls a female "baby." I think some people go to far with stuff like that.
