I really can't stay (But 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) But my puppy will start to worry (My goodness what's the hurry?) She'll be racing and pacing the floor (Listen to the fireplace roar) So really I'd better scurry (Bubba 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 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" (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 (Oh baby don't hold out) Ah, but it's cold out side I simply must go (Baby, it's cold outside) The answer is no (Jimmy, it's cold outside) Your welcome has been (How lucky that you dropped in) So nice and warm (Look out the window at the snow) 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 aunts mind is vicious (Ooh your lips are delicious) Maybe just a little puff more (Never such a blizzard before) I've gotta get home (You're gonna freeze out there) Left my coat on my boat (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 (But you won't have a job tomorrow) Age sick scandal implied (If you got pnuemonia and died) I really can't stay (Get over that hold out) Baby, it's cold outside
