Cheap Thrills Lyrics

Come on, come on, turn the radio on
It's Friday night and I won't be long
Gotta do my hair, I put my make up on
It's Friday night and I won't be long

'Til I hit the dance floor
Hit the dance floor
I got all I need
No I ain't got cash

    Urban dictionary says that
    a) a cheap thrill means doing things that usually of short enjoyment. (slang created at 2016, apparently, after sia's song)

    b) a booty call. If a man asks a girl to go and do cheap thrills it means he's asking free sex
    (slang created at 2009, before Sia's song).

    Before these urban dictionary explanations I always thought it actually means to do vain empty things with no meaning, shallow happiness, short and shallow enjoyment

    It means that money is not needed to have fun and do cool things and you dont need money do be happy.

    Money isn't everything... There are many things that don't cost much money but are priceless.

    It's about a girl and a guy who had fun without spending money.

    For the recent post, fake videoclip? You can make videos about girls and guys having fun without spending money. You have to invite a group of girls and guys and sort of follow her video or you can make your own video that is similar but with a different setting or try singing or wholesome games. Pick a wholesome place, whether outdoors or indoors. Ex.at the park or choose a multipurpose hall or gym that is free to use, etc. Hope this helps.

    Responded before next week

    Dem alltag nach einer langen woche zu entfliehen, auch wenn es nur fuer kurze zeit ist. Spass zu haben, sich frei zu fuehlen und die sorgen fuer ein paar stunden vergessen zu koennen.

    I think that the black & white background means that in the past time they used to have fun without money (drugs, alcohol, etc) well in this video looks like they supposed to... It's a nice song and a good lyric

    The real meaning is that you dont really need money or any meaningless hookups to have fun, you are capable of having fun by yourself, go out, hit the dance floor and dance to your heart's content. Coz in the end money cannot buy all the love that you need......

    My daughter tried to tell me it was about her being a prostitute...but I sure don't hear that. Reading the lyrics, it says to me that she's saying she doesn't need a lot of money to go out and have fun. Dancing is a great release of tension and brings pleasure...it's free.

    This songs means that money isn't required to have a good song. This song has a good beat to it and makes clear that even the poorest of people can have a good time.

    I think it has an element of sarcasm. The background song title sounds almost like children.
