Legal Man

This is the song which plays during the secret CD drop-off into Lane’s bag. It is Belle and Sebastian’s 2000 debut single, and was later included on their 2005 compilation album, Push Barman to Open Old Wounds. The song went to #15 in the UK, #4 on the UK Indie charts, and #9 in Scotland. It was most popular in Canada, where it went to #4.

The lyrics of the song humorously chime in with Rory’s plan to make it all happen, and even the time of year.

Refer to our discussions, confirm the terms of our love affair
I exercise all options, and I know I’ll see you there …

Not withstanding provisions of clauses 1, 2, 3 and 4
Extend contractual period, me and you for evermore

You’re the legal man, you’ve got to prove that you’re no liar
I’ll render services that you may reasonably require

L-o-v-e love, it’s coming back, it’s coming back
L-o-v-e love, it’s coming back, it’s coming back

Get out of the city and into the sunshine
Get out of the office and into the springtime
