Baby It’s Cold Outside.

‘Baby It’s Cold Outside’ is one of many beloved Christmas songs that plays for 5 months prior to Christmas and comes in 200 different versions. It’s lovely.

HOWEVER..

Has anyone while singing along all jolly like ever truly listen to the words? It’s rather frighting what lengths this guy will go to keep this girl in his house…

I really can’t stay – Baby it’s cold outside
I’ve got to go away – Baby it’s cold outside
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?
My father will be pacing the floor – Listen to the fireplace roar
So really I’d better scurry – Beautiful, please don’t hurry
Maybe just a half a drink more – 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
I ought to say no, no, no – Mind if I move in closer?
At least I’m gonna say that I tried – What’s the sense in hurting my pride?
I really can’t stay – Baby don’t hold out
Ah, but it’s cold outside

I’ve got to go home – Oh, baby, you’ll freeze out there
Say, lend me your coat – It’s up to your knees out there
You’ve really been grand – Your eyes are like starlight now
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 hold out
Ah, but it’s cold outside
Oh, baby it’s cold outside
Oh, baby it’s cold outside

Just another Christmas song ruined.. I mean it’s lovely, but it also bothers me that he’ll put something in her drink to make her stay.  Oh the creepers and their mysterious ways…

On that note…

MERRY CHRISTMAS, Friends!
