I really can't stay Betty, it's cold outside I've got to go away Betty, 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 don't you put some records on While I pour And 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 hurting 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 Man, that's hard 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'll 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 old lie Ah, but it's cold outside
