I think that shiksa in this case is instead of a non jewish girl attracted to a jewish guy it's supposed to be more like a non nerdy girl attracted to a nerdy guy. And instead of hebraic neurosis - referring to jewish idea that jewish boys should only be with jewish boys- ceasing, that he really means that a nerdy boy doesn't have to be with a nerdy girl but is actually with a hot one.

The literal meaning basically implies that the guy that has found his shiksa (hot) girlfriend is a sad excuse of a man. He knows he doesn't deserve someone as attractive and outgoing as she is and throughout the song he is devoting all of himself to her because that's all he can give to her in return. He will do anything that she wants in return for her to at least acknowledge him as a boyfriend.
