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
Beautiful, what's your hurry
My father will be pacing the floor
Listen to the fireplace roar

So really I'd better scurry
Beautiful, please don't hurry
Well maybe just a half a drink more
Put some music 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 a little 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
Ah, but it's cold outside

C'mon baby

I simply must go
Baby, it's cold outside
The answer is no
Ooh baby, it's cold outside

This welcome has been
I'm lucky that you dropped in
So nice and warm
Look out the window at that storm

My sister will be suspicious
Man, your lips look so delicious
My brother will be there at the door
Waves upon a tropical shore

My maiden aunt's mind is vicious
Gosh your lips look delicious
Well maybe just a half a drink more
Never such a blizzard before

I've got to go home
Oh baby, you'll freeze out there
Say, lend me your comb
It's up to your knees out there

You've really been grand
Your eyes are like starlight now
But don't you see
How can you do this thing to me?

There's bound to be talk tomorrow
Making 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
Ah, but it's cold outside

Baby, it's cold outside

Brr it's cold, it's cold out there
Can't you stay awhile longer, baby
Well, I really shouldn't alright
Make it worth your while, baby
Ah, do that again
