Australian singer Sia brings us yet another catchy hit along with the usual weird dancing style that really does the trick to stand out of the beaten track. This video here is actually a performance; you can watch the original official video by clicking here.

The song was originally written by Sia for Rihanna, but she rejected it and Sia finally decided to sing it herself. Too bad for Rihanna.

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
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 (I love cheap thrills)















DO MY HAIR= Comb, brush, cut or simply shape my hair somehow in a certain kind of way.

MAKE UP= Cosmetics apply to your face so it gets certain colours supposedly to make you look better (sometimes it just doesn't make the trick). To put on your make-up, or put your make-up on means to apply those colours onto your face.

I WON'T BE LONG= I'll soon be with you, this will not take me too much more time (much longer).

TIL (usually TILL) = Until

I HIT THE DANCE FLOOR= (coll.) I start dancing on the dance floor (the place for dancing in a disco). To hit a place is to go there, especially to make the designed use of it. For example "Hit the road, Jack, and don't you come back no more, no more, no more" is a straight invitation to leave me and get out of my life forever (see song here)

I GOT= (coll) I've got, I have.

I AIN'T GOT= (slang) I haven't got, I don't have.

CASH= (coll.) money. The literal meaning of this word is money which is in coins and bank notes, but in colloquial English it is often used as a general equivalent for money.

BILLS= (AmE) bank notes (cash which is in paper and not coins)

CHEAP THRILLS= A thrill is something that is exciting, that makes your heart pump faster. A cheap thrill is something exciting but which gives you no real satisfaction. But by the context of this song I guess Sia is using this expression to mean something exciting which is not expensive, otherwise she wouldn't love it.

THE BEAT= The rhythm of the music.

KEEP= Continue (always followed by -ing)

GOTTA= (coll.) I've got to, I have to, I must.

HIGH HEELS= Shoes with very high heels (see picture)
