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

My mother will start to worry (Hey beautiful, what's your hurry)
And father will be pacing the floor (Listen to that fireplace roar)
So really, I'd better scurry (Sweetheart, what's your hurry)
Well, maybe just a half a drink more (Why don't you 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 now)
To break this spell (I'll take your hat, your hair looks swell)

I oughtta say no, no, no sir (You mind if I move a little closer)
At least I'm gonna say that I tried (And what's the sense in hurtin' my pride)
I really can't stay (Oh 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 (So lucky that you dropped in)
So nice and warm (Look out the window at that storm)

My sister will be suspicious (Girl, 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 (Oh, Baby your so delicious)
Well maybe just a cigarette more (Never such a blizzard before)

I've got to get home (Baby, you'll freeze out there)
Say, lend me a coat (It's up to your knees out there)
You've really been grand (I thrill when you touch my hand)
Oh, but don't you see (How can you do this thing to me)

There's bound to be talk tomorrow (Making my lifelong sorrow)
At least there will be plenty implied (If you caught pneumonia I'd die)
I really can't stay (Get over that hold out)
Oh, but it's cold outside
Baby It's Cold Outside (together)

Come on, stay a little longer (boy)
Okay(girl)
