I really can't stay, (Baby, it's cold outside.)
I've got to go 'way. (Baby, it's cold outside.)
The 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 pacin' 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 neighbours 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 the spell (I'll take your hand; your hair looks swell.)

I ought to say, no, no, no sir. (Mind if I move a bit closer?)
At least I'm gonna say that I tried. (What's the sense in hurtin' my pride?)
I really can't stay, (Baby, don't hold out! )
[Ah, but it's cold outside! (Ah, but it's cold outside! )]

I simply must go. (Baby, it's cold outside.)
The answer is no. (Oh, Baby, it's cold outside.)
The 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 are lookin' delicious.)
My brother will be there at the door. (Waves upon a tropical shore.)
My maiden aunt's mind is vicious. (Gosh, your lips are lookin' delicious.)
Well maybe just a half a drink more. (Never such a blizzard before.)

I've got to get home. (Baby, you'll freeze out there! )
Say lend me a 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. (Think of my lifelong sorrow)
At least there will be plenty implied (If you caught pneumonia, I'd die.)
I really can't stay, (Oh, but I'll hold out! )
[Ah, but it's cold outside! (Baby, it's cold outside! )]

[Baby it's cold outside! ]

[Baby, it's cold outside! ]
