Baby, It's Cold Outside Lyrics

Song Meaning
Verse 1
(I really can't stay)
Betty, it's cold outside
(I've got to go away)
Betty, it's cold out there
Verse 2
(This evening has been)
Been hoping that you'd drop in
(So very nice)
I'll hold your hands, they're just like ice
Verse 3
(My mother will start to worry)
Beautiful, what's you're hurry
(And father will be pacing the floor)
Listen to that fireplace roar
Verse 4
(So really I'd better scurry)
Beautiful, please don't hurry
(Well, maybe just a half a drink more)
Why don't you put some records on while I pour
Verse 5
(And the neighbors might think)
Betty it's bad out there
(Say, what's in this drink?)
No cab's to be had out there
Verse 6
(I wish I knew how)
Your eyes are like starlight now
(To break the spell)
I'll take your hat, your hair looks swell
Verse 7
(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 hurtin' my pride?
Verse 8
(I really can't stay)
Baby don't hold out
Ah, but it's cold outside
Verse 9
(I simply must go)
Betty, it's cold outside
(The answer is no)
I say, it's cold out there
Verse 10
(The welcome has been)
How lucky that you dropped in
(So nice and warm)
Look out that window, man that's hard
Verse 11
(My sister will be suspicious )
Gosh, your lips look delicious
(My brother will be there at the door)
Waves upon a tropical shore
Verse 12
(My maiden aunt's mind is vicious)
Gosh, your lips are delicious
(Well maybe just a cigarette more)
Oh, never such a blizzard before
Verse 13
(I've got to go home)
Betty, you'll freeze out there
(Say, lend me your coat)
It's up to your knees out there
Verse 14
(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
Verse 15
(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
Verse 16
(I really can't stay)
Get over that old lie
Ah, but it's cold outside
