The neighbours 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 the spell – (I’ll take your hat, your hair looks swell)
I simply must go – (But baby it’s cold outside) The answer is no – (But baby 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 – (Boy, your lips look delicious!) Well maybe just a cigarette more – (Never such a blizzard before)
I got to get 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’ll 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 rid of that old out)
