It's chauvanistic, but then so are any number of songs nowadays. Usually in the reverse--somehow it's OK to bash men. Shania Twain's "Any Man of Mine" comes into my mind, but turn it around to where a man is saying, "Any woman of mine better do this and do that," especially when it's the dehumanizing groveling Twain sings about, and watch women's groups pounce.

I've got a hundred more like you
So don't be blue
I'll have a thousand 'fore I'm through

Perfect. I love it. I applied it to an ex husband who left me, and whose sister considers me a slut for no discernable reason, so when he left me he thought it wouldn't hurt me and he'd be "replaced" within a week. I threw that at him. I wanted to throw other things at him too, like cast iron skillets and chef's knives, but I decided not to.
