Cheap Thrills

Length: 3:31

Release: 2016

Opening Lyrics:

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