About Cold as Ice

"Cold as Ice" is a 1977 song by English-American rock band Foreigner from their eponymous debut album. It became one of the best known songs of the band in the US, peaking at #6 on the Billboard Hot 100. It was initially the B-side of some versions of the "Feels Like the First Time" 45 rpm single. "Cold as Ice" was used as the soundtrack for a skit on the March 25, 1978 broadcast of Saturday Night Live that showed a man being attacked by a woman in a number of grisly ways. Host Christopher Lee introduced the segment as being "not for the squeamish". The song was sampled by M. O. P. in their song "Cold as Ice" from the Warriorz album. It is featured in the video game Rock Band 3 and the second episode of the third season of Stranger Things. American rapper and producer Kanye West used a sample of the record as part of an intro for his song "Cold" on his Yeezus Tour and during his set at the Glastonbury Festival 2015. A cover version is heard in a commercial for Wendy's that debuted during Fox's broadcast of Super Bowl LI on February 5, 2017. Rapper B.o. B sampled the chorus of the song in 2010. The single version is a second shorter than the album version, but adds an orchestra track.

You're as cold as ice
You're willing to sacrifice our love
You never take advice
Someday you'll pay the price, I know

I've seen it before
It happens all the time
Closing the door
You leave the world behind

You're digging for gold
Yet throwing away
A fortune in feelings
But someday you'll pay

You're as cold as ice
You're willing to sacrifice our love
You want paradise
But someday you'll pay the price, I know

I've seen it before
It happens all the time
Closing the door
You leave the world behind

You're digging for gold
Yet throwing away
A fortune in feelings
But someday you'll pay

(Cold as ice)
You know that you are
(Cold as ice)
As cold as ice to me
(Cold as ice)

(Ooh, ooh, ooh, you're as cold as ice)
(You're as cold as ice)
You're as cold as ice
Cold as ice I know
Yes, I know
You're as cold as ice
Cold as ice I know
Oh, yes I know
You're as cold as ice
Cold as ice I know
Oh, yes I know
