"Baby" 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'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)
But maybe just a half a drink more (put some records on while I pour)

The neighbors might faint (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 well)

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 in hurting my pride?)
I really can't stay (baby, don't hold out)

Oh, 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 (ooh, your lips are delicious)
But maybe just a cigarette more (never such a blizzard before)

I've 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 hand)
But don't you see (how can you do this thing to me?)

There's bound to be talk tomorrow (think about a lifelong sorrow)
At least there will be plenty implied (if you caught pneumonia and died)
I really can't stay (get over that hold out)

Ooh, baby (oh, but it's cold outside)

    General CommentFrom my point of view not a very great song. In fact it's kind of terrible. I like how he got someone like ludacris, because if he got some weirdo to rap it it'd just be worse. Justin also managed to use product placement and it seems as though he is abusing his money, and using the cash to get the girl he needs so badly he's writing the worst song ever instead of himself. I honestly have no idea why Glee would do a cover of this song when there are so many better ones to choose from.
