"Baby, It's Cold Outside" as written by and Frank Loesser....
I really can't stay (but baby it's cold outside)
I've got to go away (but baby it's cold outside)
This evening has been (Been hoping that you 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 fire place roar)
So really, I'd better scurry (Beautiful please don't hurry)
Or maybe just half a drink more (Put some records on, while I pour)

The neighbours will think (Baby it's bad out there)
Say, what's in this drink? (No caps to be had out there)
I wish I knew how (Your eyes are like stars right now)
To break this 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 (Baby don't hold out)
Baby, 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 very nice and warm (Look out the window at that 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 Nan's mind is vicious (Your lips are delicious)
But maybe just a cigarette more (Never such a blizzard before)

I gotta get home (But baby, you'd 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 hair)
But don't you see (How can you do this thing to me?)

There's bound to be talk tomorrow (Think of our life long sorrow)
At least there will be plenty and plied (If you got pneumonia and died)
I really can't stay (Get over that hold out)
Ooh baby it's cold outside!
