After midnight - we're going to chug-a-lug & shout or not

I have had a rash of emergency calls after midnight recently and this quote came to me while driving home completely sleep deprived after dealing with some serious knuckleheads at o' dark 30 this morning. Clapton got it all wrong. Here is my version.

Jake's version:
"After midnight, the only good that happens after midnight comes from the people that are compensated to take care of the folks out after midnight."

Clapton's version:
After midnight, we're gonna let it all hang down.
After midnight, we're gonna chug-a-lug and shout.
We're gonna stimulate some action;
We're gonna get some satisfaction.
We're gonna find out what it is all about.
After midnight, we're gonna let it all hang down.

Legend has it that Ginger Baker talked Jack Bruce and Clapton into doing the Albert Hall reunion in 2005 and that he got them all gym memberships so they could train up for the 4+ hour shows in their 70's.
