"Baby, It's Cold Outside" lyrics - LADY ANTEBELLUM

"Baby, It's Cold Outside"

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 (Just listen to that fireplace roar)
Now really I better scurry (Sweetheart what's your hurry?)
Well maybe just a half a drink more (Why don't you put some records on while I pour?)

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 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)
Oh, but it's cold outside

I simply must go (Baby it's cold outside)
The answer is "No" (Baby it's cold outside)
This welcome has been (So lucky that you dropped in)
So very warm (Look out that window at that storm)

My sister will be suspicious (Gosh your lips look delicious)
And my brother will be there at the door (Waves upon a tropical shore)
My maiden aunt's mind is vicious (Ooh baby you're so delicious)
Well maybe just one little kiss more (Never such a blizzard before)

Oh I've gotta go home (You'll freeze to the bone out there)
Hey lend me your coat (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 lifelong sorrow)
At least there will be plenty implied (If you caught pneumonia and died)
I really can't stay (Get over that old out)
Baby it's cold outside
