Baby, It's Cold Outside Lyrics

Song Meaning
Verse 1
I really can't stay (but baby, it's cold outside)
I've got to go away (but baby, it's cold outside)
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 your hurry?)
My father will be pacing the floor (listen to the fireplace roar)
Verse 4
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)
Verse 5
The neighbors might think (baby, it's bad out there)
Say what's in this drink? (no cabs to be had out there)
Verse 6
I wish I knew how (your eyes are like starlight now)
To break this 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 in hurtin' my pride?)
Verse 8
I really can't stay (oh baby don't hold out)
But baby, it's cold outside
Verse 9
I simply must go (but baby, it's cold outside)
The answer is no (but baby, it's cold outside)
Verse 10
Your welcome has been(how lucky that you dropped in)
So nice and warm (look out the window at this dawn)
Verse 11
My sister will be suspicious (gosh your lips look delicious)
My brother will be there at the door (waves upon the tropical shore)
Verse 12
My maiden aunts mind is vicious (gosh your lips are delicious)
But maybe just a cigarette more (never such a blizzard before)
Verse 13
I've gotta get home(but baby, you'd freeze out there)
Say lend me a 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 got pnuemonia and died)
Verse 16
I really can't stay (get over that old out)
Baby, it's cold
Baby, it's cold outside
