Clearin' After Midnight

With apologies to Judas Priest

Clearin' after midnight

Plowin' until dawn

Better move your vehicles

Or they're gone. Or they're gone.

They took the city about 1 a.m. Grading! Grading!

Those big-ass ruts that ran the length of your street?

Fading! Fading!

They took too long to finally reach your hood?

Now don't complain - they did the best they could

Clearin' after midnight

Plowin' until dawn

Better move your vehicles

Or they're gone. Or they're gone.

I know my zone so I did not get towed. #gloating #gloating

But why's my driveway covered up in snow? #noting #noting

They're not supposed to leave the windrows there

I pay my taxes; leave my driveway bare

Clearin' after midnight

Plowin' until dawn

Forgot to move my vehicle

Now it's gone. Now it's gone.

Adapted, poorly, from Livin' After Midnight, written by Rob Halford, K.K. Downing and Glen Tipton and recorded by Judas Priest in 1980.
