Baby it's cold outside

LETRA

I really can't stay - baby, it's cold outside
I've got to go away - baby, it's cold out there
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 you're hurry
And father will be pacing the floor - listen to that fireplace roar
So really I'd better scurry - beautiful, please don't hurry
Well, maybe just a half a drink more - put some records on while I pour

And 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 the spell - I'll take your hat, your hair looks swell
I ought to say no, no, no sir - mind if I move in closer?
At least I'm gonna say that I tried - what's the sense of hurtin' my pride?
I really can't stay - baby don't hold out
Baby 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 that window, man that's hard
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 cigarette more - oh, never such a blizzard before

I've 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 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 old lie
