Baby It's Cold Outside Lyrics

 

Baby It's Cold Outside - Sammy Davis Jr./Carmen McRae

I really can't stay

But baby it's cold outside

 

I've got to go away

 

But 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 half a drink more

Put some records 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 in closer

At least I'm gonna say that I tried

What's the sense of hurting my pride

I really can't stay

Baby don't hold doubt

Ah but it's cold outside

 

I simply must go

Baby it's cold outside

 

The answer is no

Baby it's cold outside

 

The welcome has been

How lucky that you dropped in

So nice and warm

Look out the window at the storm

My sister will be suspicious

Gosh your lips look 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 delicious

But maybe just a cigarette more

Never such a blizzard before

I got to get home

But baby you'd freeze out there

 

Sam lend me a coat

It's up to your knees out there

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

There's bound to be talk tomorrow

Think of 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 doubt

Ah but it's cold

 

Outside
