"Baby, It's Cold Outside" as written by and Frank Wildhorn....
Cerys of Catatonia
Tom Jones
Together

I really can't stay
But baby it's cold outside
I've got to go 'way
Oh 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 that fireplace roar
So really I'd better scurry
Oh, Beautiful please don't hurry
Well maybe just a half a drink more
Why don't you put some records on while I pour.

The neighbors might think
Oh, baby it's bad out there
Say what's in this drink
There's 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 oughta 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
Ah, but it's cold outside

I simply must go
Oh, baby it's cold outside
The answer is No
You know it's cold outside
This welcome has been
I'm lucky that you dropped in
So nice and warm
Look out the window at that storm.

My sister will be suspicious
Oh, your lips look delicious
My brother will be there at the door
Like waves upon a tropical shore
My maiden aunt's mind is vicious
Oooh, your lips are delicious
Well maybe just a cigarette more
Never such a blizzard before.

I've got to get home
Oh, baby you would freeze out there
Say lend me a comb
You know 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 doubt,
Ah, but it's cold outside

    General CommentIt's about date rape. Read the lyrics.

    Man: "Why don't you put on some records while I pour"

    Woman: "Say what's in this drink?"

    Woman: "I wish I knew how to break this spell"

    Woman: "I simply must go. The answer is no"

    etc etc

    General Comment"Say lend me a comb"
    --Lend me a "coat" ^^;

    I can't believe there's no comments on this yet! Personally, I really don't like the Tom Jones version... These words just don't fit his voice...

    But anyway. This is one of the sexiest songs I've ever heard. Sung properly, it gives me the shivers. "Well maybe just a cigarette more" is definately the line that gets me every time.
