A story of two songwriters in Heaven finding out they finally have a hit song on Planet Earth and ask God for a pass to go back and enjoy the fruits of their labor...

Sittin' in the departure lounge

The train rolls into the station

I board take a seat wonderin'

What's the final destination



One by one we made our way home

Went through the gates and checked in

We saw each other and we both said

Long time no see how have you been



Chorus We put in years of fishin'

But no one ever took the bait

Being posthumously famous

All I can say is oh that's just great



Catchin' up over a cold one

We're listenin' to a small radio

Hey Chet yeah Barry hear that song

One we wrote a long time ago



We smile and laugh say we always knew

Someone was bound to cut our song

Can't enjoy the adulation

And somehow that just feels all wrong



Chorus We put in years of fishin'

But no one ever took the bait

Being posthumously famous

All I can say is oh that's just great



So we ask big boss for a pass

To enjoy the accolades

Like to get to soak it in

Before time's up and the fame fades



Boss says sure you both have earned it

I'll give you a week pass have fun

But here is home where you belong

So enjoy your time in the sun



Chorus We put in years of fishin'

But no one ever took the bait

Being posthumously famous

All I can say is oh that's just great



Bridge Take our wings off put on our suits

Head down to meet our destiny

Sorry guys but since you're both gone

We can't pay you a royalty



Extended End Chorus Well guess you could say that figures

Fame and fortune wasn't our fate

Being posthumously famous

All I can say is oh that's just great



We put in years of fishin'

But no one ever took the bait

Being posthumously famous
