Christmas Song Lyrics
Compiled by Charles P. Scott

Baby it's Cold Outside

Performed by Michael Bublé and Idina Menzel
Dancers: Harry Collett & Emily Carey
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
     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 that fireplace roar
So, really I'd better scurry
     Beautiful, please don't hurry
But maybe just a hald a drink more
     I'll 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 in hurting my pride?
I really can't stay
     Baby, don't hold out
Baby, it's cold outside

I simply must go
     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 the window at that 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 cigarette more
     Never such a blizzard before

I've got to get home
     Baby, you'll freeze out there
Say, lend me your comb?
     It's up to your knees out there
You've really been grand
     I thrill when I touch your 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 got pneumonia and died
I really can't stay
     Get over that hold out
Baby, it's cold
Baby, it's cold outside

About This Song
For a song that provokes such strong feelings, “Baby, It’s Cold Outside” began fairly innocently. Broadway legend Frank Loesser wrote the ditty in 1944 and performed it with his wife, Lynn Garland, at a housewarming party in New York City that same year. It was meant to amuse guests and send them on their way at the end of night, and by all accounts, people loved it.

“We had to do it over and over again, and we became instant parlor room stars,” Garland remembered. “We got invited to all the best parties for years on the basis of ‘Baby.’”

What were people responding to? On its face, “Baby, It’s Cold Outside” is a light and flirty song about a romantic evening shared by a man and a woman. Or, as the original sheet music puts it, a “wolf” and a “mouse.” The man would like the woman to spend the night, and every time the woman makes an excuse and heads for the door, he’s ready with a reason why she should stay.
