Natalie: I really can't stay
James: Baby it's cold outside
Natalie: I've got to go away
James: Oh darlin' it's cold outside
Natalie: This evening has been
James: Been hoping that you'd drop in
Natalie: So very nice
James: I'll hold your hands, they're just like ice
Natalie: My mother will start to worry
James: Beautiful, what's your hurry?
Natalie: My father will be pacing the floor
James: Listen to the fireplace roar
Natalie: So really I'd better scurry
James: Oh Beautiful, please don't hurry
Natalie: Well maybe just a half a drink more
James: Why don't you put some music on while I pour

Natalie: The neighbors might think
James: Baby, it's bad out there
Natalie: Say, what's in this drink?
James: No cabs to be had out there
Natalie: I wish I knew how
James: Your eyes are like starlight now
Natalie: To break this spell
James: I'll take your hat, your hair looks swell
Natalie: I ought to say "No sir"
James: Mind if I move a little closer?
Natalie: At least I'm gonna say that I tried
James: What's the sense in hurting my pride
Natalie: I really can't stay
James: Baby don't hold out
Both: Ahh, but it's cold outside

James (spoken): What you doing with your coat? You don't need your coat. What you putting your coat on for? It's warm in here.
Natalie (spoken): You don't understand

Natalie: I simply must go
James: Baby, it's cold outside
Natalie: Oh the answer is no
James: Oh darling, it's cold outside
Natalie: This welcome has been
James: I'm lucky that you dropped in
Natalie: So nice and warm
James: Look out that window at that storm
Natalie: My sister will be suspicious
James: Gee, but your lips look delicious
Natalie: My brother will be there at the door
James: Waves upon a tropical shore
Natalie: My maiden aunt's mind is vicious
James: Oh but your lips are delicious
Natalie: Well maybe just a half a drink more
James: They was never such a blizzard before

Natalie: Oh I've gotta go home
James: Baby, you'll freeze out there
Natalie: Say, lend me your coat
James: It's up to your knees out there
Natalie: You've really been grand
James: Thrilled when you touched my hand
Natalie: But don't you see?
James: How can you do this thing to me?
Natalie: There's bound to be talk tomorrow
James: Think of my life long sorrow
Natalie: At least there will be plenty implied
James: If you caught pneumonia and died
Natalie: I really can't stay
James: Get over that old out
Both: Ahh, but it's cold outside
Ahh, but it's cold...outside

Natalie: Baby it's cold outside
James: Baby it's cold outside
Natalie: It's cold outside
Baby it's cold outside
James: You know that it you know that it's cold outside
Natalie: Ah it's cold outside

James (spoken): Darling as a friend...
Natalie (spoken): Sure James
James (spoken): As a friend must stay and..and warm up by this fire a little bit. Let me get you some...a hot toddy or something.
Natalie (spoken): Well I don't think I can. I mean my mother will worry about me.
James (spoken): People are so suspicious. It's just innocence suggesting you stay warm and keep yourself healthy that's all. It's nippy out there. It's cold.
Natalie (spoken): You know that drink does look kinda nice...
James (spoken): It's a perfectly nice drink.

Natalie: Baby it's cold out...
Baby it's cold...
