Bodyguard? Long-lost pal?

Somebody’s playing Paul Simon’s (wait a minute while I check) 1987 hit Call Me Al. It put me in mind of a couple of things – firstly, no matter how hard I try, I can never figure out the appeal of Chevy Chase.

Secondly, I have no idea, and never did have any idea, what the song is about. The nearest I can guess is that the words “If you’ll be my bodyguard, I can be your long-lost pal…” hint at sexual roleplay between Paul Simon and Chevy Chase, which is a disturbing, if arresting, image.
