"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 CommentYeah, ignore my comment about the girl...I obviously got that wrong (six years ago).

    This is one of my favorite B&S songs. Leaves me with a feeling of wistful longing, thinking about the choices we have to make in life (e.g., the possibility of fame vs. being true to who you are).

    Also, Bob Dylan has a song "Girl from the North Country", which itself references the traditional northern-England ballad "Scarborough Fair".
