Nick Schilder & Katie Melua - Baby, it’s cold outside
Tekst en muziek: Frank Loesser
(2013)






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, 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 records on while I pour



My neighbours 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 well
I ought to say no, no sir Mind if I move in closer
At least I’m gonna say that I tried What’s the sense of hurting my pride
I really can’t stay 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 Katie, it’s cold outside
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 shore
My maiden aunt’s mind is vicious Oh, your lips are delicious
Well, maybe just a cigarette more Never such a blizzard before



I’ve got to go home But 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’ll be plenty implied If you caught pneumonia and died
I really can’t stay Get over that hold out
Oh baby, it’s cold outside
