Classic holiday duet that's been done by virtually anyone who's ever done a holiday project. Our version is a simple bluesy swing tune with minimalist accompaniment.



I really cant stay - but baby, it’s cold outside
I’ve got to go way - but baby it’s cold outside
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 the hurry?
My father will be pacing’ the floor - Listen to the fireplace roar
So really I’d better scurry - Beautiful don’t you worry
Well, Maybe just a ½ a drink more - put some records on while I pour.

The neighbors 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 this 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 in hurting my pride.

I really can’t stay - Oh baby don’t hold out!
Aw, but it’s Cold…. Outside
