Baby It's Cold Outside
(Baby, baby, baby its cold)
I really can't stay
(But baby its cold outside)
I've got to go away
(But baby its cold outside)
This evening has been...
(Been hopin' that you'd drop in)
So very nice
(I'll hold your hands they're just like ice)

My mother will start to worry!
(Beautiful what's your hurry?)
And father will be pacing the floor
(Just look at the fireplace roar)
So really I'd better scurry!
(Beautiful please don't hurry)
Well maybe just a half a drink more
(Puts some records on while I pour)

The neighbors might think
(Baby its bad out there)
Oh... say... what's in this drink
(No cabs to be had out there)
I wish I knew how...
(Your eyes are like starlight now)
To break the spell
(I'll take your hat your hair looks swell)

I outta say NO! NO! NO! sir
(Mind if I move in close?)
At least I'm gonna say that I tried!
(What's the sense of hurtin' my pride?)
I really can't stay
(Baby don't hold out)

*Both: baby its cold outside*

I simply must go
(But baby its cold outside)
The answer is no
(But baby its cold outside)
This welcome has been
(How lucky that you dropped in)
So nice and warm
(Look out that window at that storm!)

My sister will be suspicous!
(Gosh your lips look delicous!)
My brother will be there at the door!
(Waves upon a tropical shore!)
My maidin aunts mind is vicious
(Gosh your lips are delicous)
Oh... maybe just a cigarette more
(Never such a blizzard before)

I've got to get home!
(But baby you'd freeze out there!)
Well lend me a coat?
(Its up to your knees out there)
You've really been grand!
(I frill when you hold my hand)
But don't you see?
(How can you do this thing to me?)

There's bound to be talk tomorrow
(Think of my life long sorrow!)
At least there will be plenty implied!
(If you caught pneumonia and died!)
I really can't stay!
(Get over that hold out)

Baby its cold... outside!
(Repeat above line)
