I really can't stay
(Baby, it's cold outside)
I've got to go away
(Baby, it's cold outside)
This evening has been
(Been hoping 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?)
My 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 on some records 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 new how
(Your eyes are like starlight now)
To break this spell
(I'll take your coat, how it fits you so well)

I ought to say no no no no sir
(Mind if I move a little closer?)
At least I'm gonna say that I tried
(What's the sense in hurting my pride?)
I really can't stay
(Baby, don't hold out)
Mmm, but it's cold outside

Come on, baby
Come on, baby
Baby, come on

I simply must go
(Baby, it's cold outside)
The answer is no
(But baby, it's cold outside)
This welcome has been
(Lucky you dropped in)
So nice and warm
(Look out the window at that storm)

My sister will be suspicious
(My, your lips look delicious)
My brother will be there at the door
(Waves upon a tropical shore)
My maiden aunt's mind is vicious
(Oh gosh, your lips are delicious)
Well, maybe just a half a drink more
(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
(Come here and take 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'll be plenty implied
(If you caught pneumonia and died)
I really can't stay
(Get over that old out)
Ooh, but it's cold outside

Baby, it's cold outside
