After Midnight


After midnight, we’re gonna turn the street lights out

After midnight, coz the energy has run out

The windmills they ain’t a working

The Fossil fuel is still a burning

We are in the shit, of that there is no doubt

After midnight, when the street lights all go out

After midnight, all the burglars will come out

After midnight, all the muggers will be out

Cops they will be a cursing

Coz the  CCTV ain’t a working

They just can’t see what's around and about

After midnight, now the street lights have gone out
