Betty Carter e Ray Charles
I really can't stay 
Baby, it's cold outside
I've got to go 'way  
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  
why you don't put some records on while I pour
And 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 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 of hurtin' my pride?
I really can't stay  
Oh, Baby, don't hold out
Ah, but it's cold outside
Baby, it's cold outside

I simply must go
 Baby, it's cold outside
The answer is no  
I say it's cold out there
The welcome has been  
How lucky that you dropped in
So nice and warm  
Look out that 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
Well, maybe just a cigarette more  
Oh, never such a blizzard before
I've got to go home 
Baby, you'll freeze out there
Say, lend me a comb  
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 lifelong sorrow
At least there will be plenty implied  
If you caught pneumonia and died
I really can't stay  
Get over that hold out
ah, but it's cold outside
