Baby It's Cold Outside Lyrics

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

Baby it's cold outside

Brr its cold….
It's cold out there
Cant you stay awhile longer baby
Well…..I really shouldn't...alright

Make it worth your while baby
Ahh, do that again….

Thank you, pdq. However I am looking for the guitar chords as well. It might be a losing battle unless some diehard Leon Redbone fan shows up!!

Thanks again, pdq.

What a checkered history this song has.
For years I have been mistaken,
familiar with the Johnny Mercer / Margaret Whiting duet recording,
and I believed that Mercer had written it.

Well before my time,
Loesser, the actual author,
got the song into an Esther Williams movie of all things.
And the song won itself an Oscar there.

The radio gives a lot of airplay to certain versions of
"Baby It's Cold Outside" every year,
particularly at the end of the calendar year,
leading up to Christmastide and New Year's.   

The recording by Ray Charles and Betty Carter,
with a big-band arrangement
and with Ms. Carter singing very much like a horn,
is a performance that people still talk about,
long after both singers have passed away.

It troubles me that THEIR version doesn't turn up on the radio.

Is it because it is so sophisticated and grown-up sounding
that it makes all the other recordings
sound like child's play?

Ray Charles and Betty Carter
