[Bette:] I really can't stay

[James:] But baby, it's cold outside.

[B:] I got to go 'way.

[J:] But baby, it's cold outside.

[B:] This evening has been

[J:] Been hopin' that you'd drop in.

[B:] so very nice.

[J:] I'll hold your hands, they're just like ice.

[B:] My mother will start to worry.

[J:] Beautiful, what's your hurry?

[B:] My father will be pacing the floor.

[J:] Listen to that fireplace roar.

[B:] So really I'd better scurry.

[J:] Beautiful, please don't hurry.

[B:] Well, maybe just a half a drink more.

[J:] Put some records on while I pour.

[B:] You know the neighbors might think.

[J:] But baby, it's bad out there.

[B:] Er, what's in this drink?

[J:] No cabs to be had out there.

[B:] I wish I knew how

[J:] Your eyes are like starlight now.

[B:] to break this spell.

[J:] I'll take your hat, your hair looks swell.

[B:] I ought to say no, no, no sir.

[J:] Mind if I move in closer?

[B:] At least I'm gonna say that I tried.

[J:] What's the sense in hurtin' my pride?

[B:] I really can't stay,

[J:] Baby, don't hold out.

[B:] ah, but it's cold outside.

[J:] Baby, it's cold outside.

[B:] Ah, but it's cold outside.
