"Seymour Stein" as written by and Martin/murdoch/colburn/cooke/geddes/jackson/campbe....
Seymour stein, I've been lonely
I caught a glimpse of someones face
It was mine and I'd been crying

Half a world away
Ticket for a plane
Record company man
I won't be coming to dinner

My thoughts are far away
I?m working on that day
North country girl
1 think she's going to stay

Promises of fame, promises of fortune
LA to new york, San Francisco back to Boston
Has he ever seen Dundee?
Won't he hire a limousine?
Seymour send her back to me

I heard dinner went well
You liked Chris's jacket
He reminded you of Johnny
Before he went electronic

Seymour stein, sorry I missed you
Have a nice flight home
It's a good day for flying

    General Commentseymour stein was/is(?) a chairman of sire records. he also met with belle and sebastian to sign them. the line "You liked Chris's jacket/ He reminded you of Johnny/ Before he went Electronic" is about Smiths guitarist Johnny Marr. He was in a group with New Order's Bernard Sumner called Electronic. Apparently, Stein signed The Smiths. Speaking of Chris, his piano part is probably the best part of the song. I love Stevie and his songs, but this is probably my least favorite.
