I really can't stay, baby, it's cold outside
I've got to go away, oh darlin' it's cold outside
This evening has been, just 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 that fireplace roar
So really I'd better scurry, oh beautiful, please don't hurry
Well, maybe just a half a drink more
Why don't you put some music on while I pour

The neighbors will think, baby, it's bad out there
Say, what's in this drink, there's 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, sir, mind if I move in a little closer
At least I'm gonna say that I tried
Oh, what's the sense in hurting my pride
I really can't stay, baby don't hold out, ah, but it's cold outside

What are you doing with your coat
You don't need your coat
Why are you putting your coat on for
It's warm out here, you don't understand

I simply must go, baby, it's cold outside
Oh, the answer is no, oh darlin', it's cold outside
This welcome has been, lucky that you dropped in
So nice and warm, look out that window at that storm

My sister will be suspicious, please but 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, oh but your lips look delicious
Well, maybe just a half a drink more
They was never such a blizzard before

Ooh, I got to go home, 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 trill 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 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
Ah, but it's cold outside, ah, but it's cold outside

Baby, it's cold outside, baby, it's cold outside
It's cold outside, it's cold, baby, it's cold outside
You know that it's, you know that it's cold outside
Ah, it's cold outside

Darlin' as a friend, sure James
As a friend you, you must stay and, and warm up by this fire little bit
Let me get you, let me get you a hot toddy or something
Well, I really can't my mother will worry about me

People are so suspicious, it's just an innocent suggesting
You stay warm and keep yourself healthy that's all
It's nippy out there, it's cold
Oh, you know that drink does look kinda nice
It is a perfectly nice drink

Baby, it's cold out, baby, it's cold, it's warm
Baby, it's cold out, baby, it's cold outside
