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 hoping that you’d drop by.
So very nice.
I'll hold your hands their 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 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 the spell.
I'll take your hat your hair looks swell.

I ought to say no, no, no sir.
Mind if move in closer?
At least I'm going to say that I tried.
What's the sense of hurtin' my pride?
I really can't stay.
Baby don't hold out.
(Both) Ahh but its cold outside!

I simply must go.
But baby it's cold outside.
The answer is no.
But baby it's cold outside.
This welcome has been --
How lucky that you dropped in.
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.
Waves upon a tropical shore.
My maiden aunts 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.
But baby 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.
Think of my life long sorrow!
At least there'll be plenty of implied.
If you caught pneumonia and died!
I really can't stay.
Get over that old out.
(Both) Ahhh but it's cold...Outside.
