Ray Charles – Baby It's Cold Outside lyrics

I really can't stay
Baby, it's cold outside
I've got to go away
Baby, it's cold out there
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
What you're hurry
And father
Will be
Pacing the floor
To that fireplace
So really
I'd better scurry
Please don't hurry
Well, maybe
Just a half
A drink more
Put some records on
While I pour

And the neighbors
Might think
It's bad out there
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 the spell
I'll take your hat
Your hair looks swell

I ought to say
No, no, no sir
Mind if I
Mmove 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
But it's cold outside

I simply must go
But baby
It's cold outside
The answer is no
I say
It's cold out there
The welcome
Has been how lucky
That you dropped in
So nice and warm
Look out that window
Man that's hard

My sister
Will be suspicious
Your lips look delicious
My brother
Will be there at the door
Waves upon a tropical
My maiden
Aunt's mind is vicious
Your lips are delicious
Well maybe
Just a cigarette more
Never such a blizzard

I've got to go home
You'll freeze out there
Say, 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
Of my lifelong sorrow
At least there
Will be plenty implied
If you caught pneumonia
And died
I really can't stay
Get over that old lie

But it's cold outside
