From the recording My First Posthumous Release
MY FIRST POSTHUMOUS RELEASE
(AL ROSE - WHEEL SEA MUSIC / ASCAP)
When I’m dead and gone
When I fly off with the geese
They’ll find what I was working on where they expected least
A photo tinted sepia/ Liner notes in black
A page or two reflective quotes that were said behind my back
'I think he was a friend of mine'/ 'His spirit seldom ceased'
I charted in a month with my first posthumous release
I’m dead and gone
And I’m on the charts where I belong/ Release
I heard they had a party and several people showed
They gave my wife a metal plaque and served shrimp on a boat
I finally got a record deal/ My manager was pleased
I heard he was the genius of my posthumous release
I’m almost sorry
What’s the question?
Got your message
The label might be dropping me cuz I can’t really tour
They question my commitment to career
But I’m hotter than a lightening rod cuz I don’t return my calls
They may want me for a comeback in a year.
