Baby, It's Cold Outside

This song is by Johnny Mercer.

M: I really can't stay
J: But baby, it's cold outside
M: I've got to go 'way!
J: But baby, it's cold outside
M: This evening has been...
J: Been hoping that you'd drop in
M: So very nice
J: I'll hold your hands, they're just like ice!
M: My mother will start to worry...
J: Beautiful, what's your hurry?
M: And father will be pacing the floor
J: Listen to the fireplace roar
M: So really, I'd better scurry
J: Beautiful, please don't hurry
M: Well, maybe just a half a drink more
J: Put some records on while I pour
M: The neighbors might think...
J: But baby, it's bad out there
M: Say, what's in this drink?
J: No cabs to be had out there
M: I wish I knew how...
J: Your eyes are like starlight, now
M: To break the spell
J: I'll take your hat
M: (gasp)
J: Your hair looks swell!
M: I ought to say no, no, no, sir
J: Mind if I move in closer?
M: At least I'm gonna say that I tried
J: What's the sense of hurting my pride?
M: I really can't stay
J: Baby, don't hold out...

Both: Ah, but it's cold outside...

M: I simply must go!
J: But baby, it's cold outside
M: The answer is no!
J: But baby, it's cold outside
M: This welcome has been...
J: How lucky that you dropped in
M: So nice and warm
J: Look out the window at that storm!
M: My sister will be suspicious...
J: Gosh, your lips look delicious
M: My brother will be there at the door!
J: Waves upon a tropical shore...
M: My maiden aunt's mind is vicious!
J: Ooh, your lips are delicious...
M: Well, maybe just a cigarette more
J: Never such a blizzard before!
M: I've got to get home!
J: But, baby, you'll freeze out there
M: See ya, say, lend me a comb!
J: It's up to your knees out there
M: You've really been grand...
J: I thrill when you touch my hand
M: But don't you see?
J: How can you do this thing to me?
M: There's bound to be talk tomorrow...
J: Think of my life long sorrow...
M: At least, there will be plenty implied...
J: If you caught pneumonia and died!
M: I really can't stay
J: Get over that old out...

Both: Ooh baby, it's cold outside...
