I would have said Equus tribute, if not for the fact this album came out before that particular play was written.
In all fairness to Don McLean, I think he's mostly objecting to treating a woman like an animal for show. But unfortunately he takes the metaphor a little too far; it's a metaphor that can get out of hand all too easily.
At least it's not as bad as "Chestnut Mare" (accessible via the "horsefucker" tag), where they sing about stalking the horse for weeks, watching it bathe, and eventually making it "like a wife".
