Baby It's Cold Outside Lyrics

Baby It's Cold Outside - Louis Jordan

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 words you're humming

And 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 records on while i pore

The neighbors might think

But 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 hat

Your hairs 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 hurtin my pride

I really can't stay oh baby don't hold out

Ah but it's cold outside


I simply must go but baby it's cold outside

The answer is no but baby it's cold outside

The welcome has been

How lucky that you dropped in

So nice and warm

Look out that window at that storm

My sister will be suspicious

God 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

Well mabye just a cigarette more

Never such a blizzard before

I got to get home

But baby you'd freeze out there

Say lend me a coat

It's up to your knees out there

You've really been grand

I'm thrilled when you touch my hand

Why 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 and died

I really can't stay

Get over that hold out


Ah but it's cold outside


Where could you be going

When the wind is blowing

And it's cold outside


Baby it's cold cold outside
