Well, honey buns, it's been fun but I gotta run
(Oh sweet lips, stay a little while longer would ya’?)
No, it’s very late baby, I really gotta go
(But look at the weather, you’d catch cold and I’d never forgive myself)

Oh, oh, oh, you
(Come on, just one more [unverified])
No, I really shouldn’t
(Come on)
No, well

I really can't stay
(But baby, it's cold outside!)
I've got to go away
(But baby, it's cold outside
This evening has been
(Been hopin’ that you’d drop in)

So very nice
(I'll hold your hands there, just like ice)
My mother will start to worry
(Beautiful, what’s your hurry?)
And father will be pacing the floor
(Listen to that fireplace roar)

So really, I'd better scurry
(Beautiful, please don't hurry)
Well, maybe just a half a drink more
(Put some records 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)
To break the spell
(I’ll take your hat, your hair looks swell)

I ought to say no, no, no, sir
(Mind if I move in closer?)
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)
Ahh, but it's cold outside

Well, I must say, this couch is very comfortable
(It’s not a coutch puddin’-pop, it’s a love seat)
Ooh, whoo, whoo, how you talk

Oh Barry, I simply must go
(But baby, it's cold outside)
The answer is no
(But baby, it's cold outside)

The welcome has been
(How lucky that you’d drop by)
So nice and warm
(Look out the window, at that storm)

My sister will be suspicious
(Gosh your lips look delicious)
My brother will be there at the door
(Like waves upon a tropical shore)

My maiden aunt's mind is vicious
(Gosh your lips are delicious)
Well, maybe just a cigarette more
(Never such a blizzard before)

I’ve got to get home
(Baby, you’d freeze)
Say darlin’, can you lend me your coat?
(It's up to your knees out there)

You've really been grand
(I thrill when you touch 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 old out)
Ahh baby, it's cold outside

Well, I don’t know, I gotta go home
(Hey look, it’s starting to snow)
Oh, you arranged that didn’t you?
(See, now you gotta stay)

Well, I guess, I won't be able to find a cab
(There are no cabs out there)
And the buses, they never run
(They never run in the snow like this, let me take your coat)

Tomorrow’s Sunday isn’t it? I don’t have to go to work
(See, isn’t that better?)
And who knows how long it’ll keep snowing?
(It can snow for a long time Kate)
What are you doing? Ooh, well now, ha ha ha, yeah
