I really can't stay
Baby, it's cold outside
I've got to away
But 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 worry
Beautiful, what's the hurry?
My father will be pacing the floor
Listen to the fireplace roar
So really I'd better scurry
Beautiful, please don't hurry
But 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 that 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"
Mind if I move in closer?
At least I'm gonna say that I tried
What's the sense in 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
But baby, it's cold outside
The 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 the tropical shore
My maiden aunt's mind is vicious
Ooh, your lips are delicious
But maybe just a cigarette more
Never such a blizzard before

I've gotta get home
Baby, you'd freeze out there
Say, lend me a 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 lifelong sorrow
At least there will be plenty implied
If you caught pneumonia and died

I really can't stay
Get over that holdout
Oh, but it's cold outside
