I really cant stay - Baby its cold outside
Ive got to go away - Baby its cold outside
This evening has been - Been hoping that youd drop in
So very nice - Ill hold your hands, theyre just like ice
My mother will start to worry - Beautiful, whats your hurry
My father will be pacing the floor -
Listen to the fireplace roar
So really Id better scurry - Beautiful, please dont hurry
Well maybe just a half a drink more -
Put some music on while I pour

The neighbors might think - Baby, its bad out there
Say, whats in this drink - No cabs to be had out there
I wish I knew how - Your eyes are like starlight
To break the spell - Ill take your hat, your hair looks swell
I ought to say no, no, no, sir - Mind if I move closer
At least Im gonna say that I tried -
Whats the sense in hurting my pride?
I really cant stay - Baby dont hold out
Baby, its cold outside

I simply must go - Baby, its cold outside
The answer is no - Baby, its cold outside
This welcome has been - Im lucky that you dropped in
So nice and warm - Look out the window at that storm
My sister will be suspicious - your lips look delicious
My brother will be there at the door -
Waves upon a tropical shore
My maiden aunts mind is vicious - your lips are delicious
Well maybe just a half a drink more -
Never such a blizzard before
Ive got to go home - baby, youll freeze out there
Say, lend me your coat - Its up to your knees out there
Youve really been grand -
I thrill when you touch my hand
But dont you see - How can you do this thing to me?
Theres 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 cant stay - Get over that hold out
Baby, its cold outside
