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 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 
Well maybe just a half a drink more - Put some music on 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 knew how - Your eyes are like starlight 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 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 
Ahh, but it's cold outside 

C'mon baby 

I simply must go - Baby, it's cold outside 
The answer is no - Ooh baby, 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 - Man, your lips look so delicious 
My brother will be there at the door - Waves upon a tropical shore 
My maiden aunt's mind is vicious - Gosh your lips look delicious 
Well maybe just a half a drink more - Never such a blizzard before 

I've got to go home - Oh, baby, you'll freeze out there 
Say, lend me your comb - It's up to your knees out there 
You've really been grand - Your eyes are like starlight now 
But don't you see - How can you do this thing to me 
There's bound to be talk tomorrow - Making my life long sorrow 
At least there will be plenty implied - If you caught pneumonia and died 
I really can't stay - Get over that old out 
Ahh, but it's cold outside
