"Cheap Kicks" as written by and Shingai Elizabeth Maria/smith Shoniwa....
Put me in the cab it's raining outside
Had it up to here this is the last time
You kissed me on my throat in broad daylight
And we were like two kittens in a play fight

It didn't last a week I could have told you so
You were too much for me and I didn't let you know
So now you loathe me gone to the dark side
And I'm in somebody's arms to get you off my mind

Cheap kicks are alright, yeah
If you don't know what's good for you tonight
Cheap kicks are alright
If you don't know what's good

A million hearts are broken every hour
It'll be OK, don't let the milk turn sour
Now there'll be no more going through the motions
And there'll be no more drowning in sweet potions

It didn't last a week I could have told you so
You were too much for me and I didn't let things grow
So now you loathe me you've gone to the dark side
And I'm in somebody's arms to get you off my mind

Cheap kicks are alright
If you don't know what's good for you tonight
Cheap kicks are alright
If you don't know what's good
Cheap kicks are alright
'Cause you don't know what's good for you sometimes
Cheap kicks are alright
If you don't know what's good

Cheap kicks are alright
Cheap kicks are alright
Cheap kicks are alright
If you don't know what's good f

Cheap kicks are alright
If you don't know what's good for you sometimes
Cheap thrills are alright
If you don't know what's good

No
No
No
No
No
No
No

Cheap kicks are alright
Cheap kicks are alright
Cheap kicks are alright
Cheap kicks are alright
Cheap kicks are alright
Cheap kicks are alright

    General CommentI loooove this song, its just so nice and flippent. Instead of expressing views of pining for someone you care about i think she's explaining that its ok to do what you want or whatever happens. Almost guilt free about everything.

    My InterpretationAgreed with gemsmimipatrol -- She's saying it's okay to try out a relationship, even though it may hurt the person in the song. You never know, right?
