Lyrics

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

My mother will start to worry (Baby, what's your hurry?)
My father will be pacing the floor (Listen to the fireplace roar)
So really I'd better scurry (Baby, don't you hurry)
Well maybe just a half a drink more (Put some record on while I pour)

The neighbors might think (Baby, it's bad out there)
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 this spell (I'll take your hat, your hair looks swell)

I ought to say no, no, no, sir (Mind if I move closer)
At least I'm gonna say that I tried (What's the sense in hurting my pride?)
I really can't stay (Baby, don't hold out)
Oh, but it's cold outside

I simply must go (Baby, it's cold outside)
The answer is no (But baby, it's cold outside)
The welcome has been (How lucky that you dropped in)
So nice and warm (Look out the window at that storm)

My sister will be suspicious (Gee, your lips look delicious)
My brother will be there at the door (Waves upon a tropical shore)
My maiden aunt's mind is vicious (Did I I say your lips looks delicious?)
Well maybe just kiss of it more (Never such a blizzard before)

I've got to get home (Baby, you'll freeze out there)
Say, lend me your coat (It's up to your knees out there)
You've really been grand (I thrill when you touch)
Why don't you see? (How can you do this thing to me?)
There's bound to be talk tomorrow (Think of my lifelong sorrow)
At least there will be plenty implied (If you got pneumonia and died)

I really can't stay (Get over that cold out)
Oh, but it's cold outside
Baby, it's cold outside
Baby, it's cold out
Baby, it's cold outside
