It's Cold Out There!

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
Well Maybe just a half a drink more - Put some music on while I pour

Baby it's cold outside
Lyrics and music: Frank Loesser, 1944


We are far better off than folks on the east coast who are getting hit hard with winter storms, so I really shouldn't complain, but I can almost hear the birch tree sing, "Baby, it's cold out here!" The cold temperatures cause me to pick up the pace as I venture between warm spaces, so I am almost trotting between car and mall and back again. Hopefully, my body is burning great numbers of calories after the recent feasting.
