Baby, It's Cold Outside

In the style of

Ray Charles

Betty Carter

Lyrics

i really can't stay
betty
it's cold outside
i've got to go 'way
betty it's cold
out there

this evening has been
been hopin' 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 don't you
put some records on

while i pour
the neighbors
might think
betty 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
baby don't hold out
ah but it's
cold outside

i simply must go
betty
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
betty you'd freeze
out there

say lend me
your 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 holdout
ah but it's cold
out-side
