Music Monday: Baby, It’s Cold Outside


Music Monday is a meme that was created by Drew from The Tattooed Book Geek. You pick a song and/or video and share it on Monday.

The song and video I am sharing today is:

Baby, It’s Cold Outside

After a full October of spooky themed tunes you may see this post and think well here she goes with the Christmas tunes. Actually I didn’t plan at all to have Christmas music up but my cousin shared an article the other day that there’s radio stations out there banning this Christmas classic due to being offended over the lyrics…. Really?? A classic Christmas song?? Well, I’m offended over people being offended over every little thing and not just choosing to not participate in whatever it is they are currently complaining about themselves but instead insisting that no one can enjoy it either. So in answer I decided to play the song myself for those that still just think it’s a catchy tune. There’s so many versions out there too I decided to share a few of them! 😇


I really can’t stay (Baby it’s cold outside)
I gotta go away (Baby it’s cold outside)
This evening has been (Been hoping that you’d dropped 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 (I’ll put some records on while I pour)
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 this spell (I’ll take your hat, your hair looks swell) (Why thank you)
I ought to say no, no, no sir (Mind if 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)
Baby it’s cold outside
Ah, you’re very pushy you know?
I like to think of it as opportunistic
I simply must go (Baby it’s cold outside)
The answer is no (But baby it’s cold outside)
The 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 (Gosh your lips are delicious!)
Well maybe just a cigarette more (Never such a blizzard before) (And I don’t even smoke)
I’ve got to get home (Baby you’ll freeze out there)
Say lend me a coat? (It’s up to your knees out there!)
You’ve really been grand, (I feel when I touch your 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 over that old out)
Baby it’s cold
Baby it’s cold outside
Okay fine, just another drink then
That took a lot of convincing!

  1. Exactly! I thought that was so ridiculous myself. So far the worst I’ve heard this year was Kristen Bell’s comment complaining about how the prince didn’t ask Snow White’s permission before kissing her hand! Give me a break.

    Great shares, Carrie! 💚❤💚

    • Yes, I do too unfortunately. I was reading an article not too long ago how it started as something uplifting but has turned into something that is only setting things backwards now and I can definitely see that which is sad.

    • Thanks, obviously I completely agree! This one has been around for 80 years or so and so many good people have sang it without ever having this brought up before so it just seems so silly now.


    • Yes, exactly! The times have changed tremendously since the 1940s when that was written and the fun, flirty banter now gets turned into something ominous for those that just look for things to complain about.
