Cheap Thrills
Sia Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

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

'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

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

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

'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

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

(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

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

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, la (I love cheap thrills)

Overall Meaning

Sia's "Cheap Thrills" is a cheerfully upbeat song about enjoying the simple things in life, specifically dancing without needing much money. The song starts with Sia inviting listeners to turn on the radio and join her on a Friday night. She's excited to go out but first she wants to do her hair, put her makeup on, and get ready for a night of dancing. The chorus repeats the song's title, "Baby, I don't need dollar bills to have fun tonight," emphasizing that she doesn't need cash to enjoy herself. She can have a great time with just the beat and a dance floor.


In the second verse, Sia switches the day to Saturday and gets ready in a similar manner. The song basically repeats itself, with Sia expressing her love for cheap thrills and not needing money to have fun. The bridge repeats this message, "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."


The song overall is a celebration of dancing and enjoying the moment without the need for extravagant expenses. It's possible that Sia wrote the song as a commentary on the expensive and often inaccessible club scene or the pressure to buy expensive things to prove one's worth. Overall, the song encourages listeners to embrace simplicity and find joy in the little things.
