"Decision At Midnight" as written by and Robert Michael Hingley....
Johnny's got a problem and he's shooting above
Decision at midnight
I heard him tellin Mr. Trouble that the job don't pay enough
Now Johnny goes and drops out of sight
Decision at midnight
They took him down an alley and shot him right between the eyes
Decision at midnight

Now Julie's on a barstool knockin them back
Decision at midnight
Thinking up a story so she can beat some rap
She's high on booze and high on pride
Decision at midnight
And win or lose
It's a...decision at midnight


Decision at midnight!
So win or lose
If you run alright
The choice is yours
Decision at midnight!

Jailbird bossanova got caught and charged for the first time
(Got a five to fifteen year bid)
South Jamaican Queens Posse murda killin
(You're doin' time jailbird)
Death penalty should be enforced
(Life imprisonment for you jailbird bossanova)
Still remember what he wanna call himself...bossanova

So now he's doin' time up in the joint
Decision at midnight
I heard he got picked up during Operation Pressure Point
Said he'd stop when it got too much
Decision at midnight
Should have seen his face when they were slapping on the cuffs!

Decision at midnight
Decision at midnight


So win or lose
If you run alright
The choice is yours
Decision at midnight!
At midnight!

    General CommentI think the song in general is about how one crucial moment of good or bad judgement can make all the difference between outcomes in life. It just so happens though that these decisions typically aren't made in broad daylight, they're made in the dead of night, hence the title.
