Meaning of “My Kind of Woman” by Mac DeMarco

“My Kind of Woman” is an interesting love song, because both of its verses can be interpreted in a negative way. Actually the first verse concludes on a positive note, with Mac DeMarco pointing out that he’s all good so long as his sweetheart is “next to (him)”. But that sentiment is premised on the vocalist also asserting that this selfsame honeybun is ‘making him crazy’ and ‘driving him mad’.

So what DeMarco appears to be getting at is the addressee being akin to a nag, but his love for her, especially when they find themselves alone, supersedes such inconveniences.

Then, the second verse finds Mac rather lambasting himself. The vocalist obviously suffers from self-esteem issues, to the point that he’s having a difficult time understanding why the addressee is committed to him to begin with. So that would also logically be one of, if not the main reason DeMarco sees her as ‘his kind of woman’, because despite all the flaws present in the relationship she is the faithful type.

“You’re my, my, my, my kind of woman
My, oh my, what a girl
You’re my, my, my, my kind of woman
And I’m down on my hands and knees
Begging you please, baby
Show me your world”
