Question: How can I get my car to start?

I drove my car to work and parked it . a came back to try to start it but the engine wouldn't turn over . So check the battery cables , check to make sure they were secure. Then I went tho try to start it again and there it's just a clicking sound. The radio comes on and the Interiorlights , but it just makes a clicking sound when I try to start it up.
