I really can't stay
(But baby, it's cold outside)
I 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 worry?)
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 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 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 use of hurting my pride?)
I really can't stay
(Baby, don't hold out)
Ah, but it's cold outside

There's bound to be talk tomorrow
(Think of my life long sorrow)
Atleast there will be plenty implied
(If you caught pneumonia and died)
I really can't stay
(Get over that hold-out)
Baby, it's cold outside
