(feat. christina aguilera)
i really can’t stay – baby, it’s cold outside
i’ve got to go away – baby, it’s cold out there
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?
and father will be pacing the floor – listen to that 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 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
to break the 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
oh, baby it’s cold outside
i simply must go – baby, it’s cold outside
the answer is no – i said it’s cold out there
this 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 storm
my maiden aunt’s mind is vicious – oh, your lips are delicious
maybe just a cigarette more – never such a blizzard before
i’ve got to go home – baby, you’ll freeze alive
say, lend me your coat – i mean it’s up to your knees out there
you’ve really been grand – i’m thrilled 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 hold out
ohhh, baby it’s cold outside
