Baby, It’s Cold Outside – Margaret Whiting and Johnny Mercer

6 Apr

Elf version

I really can’t stay (Baby it’s cold outside)
I’ve got to go ‘way (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

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 cigarette more (Never such a blizzard before)

I’ve got to go home (Oh, baby, you’ll freeze out there)
Say, lend me your 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 out)
Ahh, but it’s cold outside
Baby it’s cold outside
