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?
Daddy will be pacing the floor - Listen to the fireplace roar
So really I'd better scurry - Hey Beautiful, please don't hurry
Well maybe just a half a drink more - Put some records on while I pour
The neighbors might think - Yeah but it's bad out there
Hey, 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 - You mind if I move in closer?
At least I'm gonna say that I tried - What's the sense in hurting my pride?
I really can't stay - Don't hold out
Ahh, but - Baby,
It's cold outside
[guitar solo]

I simply must go - Baby, it's cold outside
The answer is no - But baby, it's cold outside
This welcome has been - How lucky you dropped in
So nice and warm - Just look out the window, baby look 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 aunt's mind is vicious - Gosh your lips are delicious
Well, maybe just a few minutes more - Never such a blizzard before
I've got to go home - But, baby, you gonna freeze out there
Hey, I need a comb! - It's up to your knees out there
You've really been grand - I'm thrilled 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 - Well you think 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 out
Ahh, but - Baby
It's cold outside
