"Baby, It's Cold Outside" as written by and Frank Wildhorn....
I really can't stay
But, baby, it's cold outside
I got to go 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 to worry
Beautiful, what's your hurry?
And father will be pacing the floor
Listen to the 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

The neighbors might think
But 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 hurting my pride?
I really can't stay
Oh, baby don't hold out, baby
Ahh, 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
This 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 a tropical shore
My maiden aunt's mind is vicious
Gosh, your lips are delicious
Well, maybe just a cigarette more
Never such a blizzard before

I've got to get home
But, baby, you'll freeze out there
Say, lend me a comb
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 life long sorrow
At least there will plenty implied
If you caught pneumonia and died
I really can't stay
Get over that old out, baby
Ahh, but it's cold outside

Where could you be going
When the wind is blowing and it's cold outside?
Baby, it's cold, cold outside

    General CommentOne of my favorite songs, but not my favorite version. Luv this artist, though. I grew up with him on the stereo daily because he was one of my parents' favorites. The song is so dated, which makes it even more beautiful due to its innocence. I grew up at a time when couples couldn't kiss in TV shows nor share a bed even if they were married. EVERYONE worried what the neighbors would think because little Susie and little Johnny each had their set rules of behavior to follow and there were dire consequences if they didn't follow them. Without sex on the table (so-to-speak), relationships took time developing. Couples got to know each other as people before they took it to the next level, which often wasn't until marriage (or darn near close to it). Sex was a special act...often a religious act to consemmate a marriage that was founded on love, not lust. Anyway, the innocence of this song gets me every time; I love the romantic images it conjurs in the mind...and heart.
