A little. But the song won't be played on the PA system at Shea anytime soon, since the lyrics include the line "Piazza, New York catcher, are you straight or are you gay?."

Another famous person immortalized in a B&S song: Record producer Seymour Stein (who founded Sire Records, signed Madonna), in "Seymour Stein."
