Cheap Thrills Lyrics

[Verse 1]
Come on, come on, turn the radio on
It’s Friday night and I won’t be long
Gotta do my hair, put my make up on
It’s Friday night and I won’t be long

[Pre-Chorus]
‘Til I hit the dance floor
Hit the dance floor
I got all I need
No, I ain’t got cash
I ain’t got cash
But I got you baby

[Chorus]
Baby, I don’t need dollar bills to have fun tonight
(I love cheap thrills)
Baby, I don’t need dollar bills to have fun tonight
(I love cheap thrills)
But I don’t need no money
As long as I can feel the beat
I don’t need no money
As long as I keep dancing

[Verse 2]
Come on, come on, turn the radio on
It’s Saturday and I won’t be long
Gotta paint my nails, put my high heels on
It’s Saturday and I won’t be long

[Pre-Chorus]
‘Til I hit the dance floor
Hit the dance floor
I got all I need
No, I ain’t got cash
I ain’t got cash
But I got you, baby

[Chorus]
Baby, I don’t need dollar bills to have fun tonight
(I love cheap thrills)
Baby, I don’t need dollar bills to have fun tonight
(I love cheap thrills)
I don’t need no money
As long as I can feel the beat
I don’t need no money
As long as I keep dancing

[Bridge]
(I love cheap thrills)
(I love cheap thrills)
I don’t need no money
As long as I can feel the beat
I don’t need no money
As long as I keep dancing
Oh, oh

[Chorus]
Baby, I don’t need dollar bills to have fun tonight
(I love cheap thrills)
Baby, I don’t need dollar bills to have fun tonight
(I love cheap thrills)
I don’t need no money
As long as I can feel the beat
I don’t need no money
As long as I keep dancing

[Outro]
La, la, la, la, la, la, la
(I love cheap thrills)
La, la, la, la, la, la, la
(I love cheap thrills)
La, la, la, la, la, la, la
(I love cheap thrills)
La, la, la, la, la, la
(I love cheap thrills)
