Uh yea.

Well the thing is that the beautiful females in this society are only after a man that can provide for them and give them a better life. I mean, What women doesnt want a man with money. Money is what gives a man (if hes not good looking or even if he is) a chance to get with the "girl". He talks about her looks because he doesnt know her to be judging by her "brain". Women all want to be admired for their "brains" but their so quick to use their cleavage and their sexiness to get what they want. Hypocrites.

Your charm must bring beautiful women flocking to you in droves. You must be sooooo hot!

o im sorry if i wasnt

o im sorry if i wasnt "charming" enough for you. Maybe because im not trying to get into your pants and i can only imagine the kind of monsters you attract with all your hatred and negativity towards men. Especially when one pours his heart out to a girl that would never have him.

Stop overanalyzing this.

Stop overanalyzing this. Instead of trying to blame every interpretative statement on sexism and ruined culture, look at it this way: its a guy singing to a girl he wants to be with. Contrasting from rap, this is a gentle, vulgarity-free kind of song. It's quite simple. I assure you, if a girl had been writing this, the approach would have been different, emotionally, stylistically, etc. Yet, always, an individual who truly cares for someone will want them to be happy, and to provide for them.
I don't care what inspired this song. It is so real, pure, and beautiful that the odd reasoning for its creation, its past, does not condemn it in its future.

Don't you just love picking

Don't you just love picking apart every single little detail of every little thing? I know I do. Can't you just taste the sarcasm? It's a song. Only this, and nothing more.
There's nothing sexist or wtfe about it. Goddamn.

What's the big problem here?

What's the big problem here? Its a simple little song about a guy in love with a girl. Why are some people here analyzing it like you would a history essay or Ivanhoe? Can't you just appreciate a cute sentimental song for what it really is? A cute sentimental song!

Sigh

I like this song a lot. I think you're right, but it's definitely better than some songs. Anyway, thanks for the post.

This article sucks.

This article was so horribly inaccurate it hurts. It makes the singer out to be some jerk that has all these stereotypical views about women. He fell in love with her and she didn't return the affection. In reality, he wrote the song as a kind of last effort to charm her, not because he was some player kind of guy that thought he could use cheap tricks. He uses the word "girl" because it flows better than woman. He talked about paying the bills with his guitar because he's saying he wants to make her happy in any way he can and his talent, as implied, is music, which would make that the likely way to succeed. He used the word "blame" because it rhymes. It's that simple.
