"Don't Want To Pay" as written by and Darren Hanlon....
The doors to the cinema are open for the taking
Like a cat on a mouse, I'm ready to pounce
Before my nerve starts breaking

And if I'm caught by the ticket collector
I promise I will always respect her
She might be feeling like her job
Is like that out-of-date ticket stub

And I get a thrill
I just take one seat that Hollywood couldn't fill
Because I don't want to pay
No, I don't want to pay
When there's no-one on the door
You won't see me anymore
Because I don't want to pay

It's not an exercise in saving money
I don't do it to impress my friends

I do it to start that thing in my heart
That fills me with adrenalin
'Cause I'm a rebel without a ticket
Yeah, I'm a matinee mutineer
How can you know what I'm searching for
Until you feel that post-sneak euphoria?

And I get a thrill
If only for the want of time to kill
Because I don't want to pay
Yeah, I don't want to pay
When there's no-one on the door
You won't see me anymore
Because I don't want to pay
No I don't want to pay

It's not the size of your budget
But what you do with it that counts

    The best part about all these songs is that Darren really does have a fixation with sneaking into places. I remember he talked about trying to jump a fence into Cedar Point while touring the States some years ago...
