Who is Bobby?

It seems like this name has come up in several High Llamas songs.

 It's Robert Wyatt, isn't it? At least I believe the Bobby in "Sailing Bells" is Robert Wyatt.

 How about in Bobby's Court? I'm fairly sure that name is referenced elsewhere, but I can't think right now.

Bobby is also the main character in the Jonathan Coe written 'Say Hi to the Rivers and the Mountains'

 Hmm... I'd still love to know who he is as far as Sean's intentions go. I'd love to know the meaning behind many Llamas lyrics, in fact. They're so abstract.

 "Leaf and Lime" might contain a reference to Bobby at some point?
