That's the one Andrew - just listen to the vocals - in parts reminiscent of a pub singer just after last orders have been called!
Personally, I've always followed the advice of the late Harry Boardman, when I first saw him back in around 1968. Coming to an abrupt halt he said to the audience "If there's one thing worse than stopping in the middle of a song, it's playing with your instrument out of tune."
