Necro Sexual ?

As unmetal as a song like "Walking in Memphis"  is, I believe I may have stumbled across a verse which seems to infer that the ghost of Elvis Presley is in fact, participating in a vile act . 

March Cohen, piano balladeer of the Bruce Hornsby 80/90'2 AOR ilk had a huge hit with this song. Fucking Cher covered it. Doesnt strike anyone on Earth as anything remotely metal. And this..

"Saw the ghost of Elvis, on Union  Avenue
Followed him up to the gates of Graceland
Then I watched him walk right through
Now security they did not see him
They just hovered 'round his tomb
But there's a pretty little thing
Waiting for the King
Down in the Jungle Room".

It would seem that....
1. The narrator has the ability to percieve the supernatural, rather naturally (metal!)
2. The narrator has his eye on both the movment of the guards, who are either unaware or choose to turn a blind eye ("did not see him"), to the going's on  at  Graceland after hours, and the literal going's on in the jungle room. which would make him a survalliance creep (slightly metal).
3. The fact that the narrator knows there is a "pretty little thing"= young pussy  waiting for the King. 
Can we infer that the narrator is in service to to the ghost to deliver sweet meat? Which is King Diamond levels of unsettling.
