Leaving aside the references in the song's text, about the song itself:

The first time I heard the song I thought it a somewhat clever and an affecting song. "And so true!"

The second time I recognized it, and remembered my original reaction, cited above.

The third and subsequent times I've heard it my reaction has been, "Hey, what a pile of obvious, emetic sentimentality!"
