Dean Martin – Baby It’s Cold Outside
Published on Nov 20, 2008
Baby It’s Cold Outside. Composed by Frank Loesser in 1944. Recorded By Dean Martin in 1959
I have always thought this song was adorable. It’s cute and coy and sexy without saying anything untoward — but in the oh-so-proper ways of the time it was written in that lasted well after, at least till I was well into ‘growing up.’
But now, some freak of nature from deep in the nooks and crannies of our media driven culture was offended, so a putrid wuss of a corporation bows to the putz. That is repulsive and spineless. Oh, wait, is “nooks and crannies” offensive? It is? Good!
This country is freakin’ doomed.

(I really can’t stay) But baby it’s cold outside
(I’ve got to to go away) But baby it’s cold outside
(This evening has been) Been hoping 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 half a drink) 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) Mind if I move in closer
(At least I’m gonna to say I tried) What’s the sense of hurting my pride
(I really can’t stay) Baby don’t hold out
Baby it’s cold outside
(I simply must go) Baby it’s cold outside
(The answer is no) But baby it’s cold outside
(This welcome has been) How lucky that you dropped in
(So nice and warm) Look out the window at that storm
(My sister will be suspicious) Gosh your lips look delicious
(My brother will be there at the door) Waves upon a tropical shore
(My maiden aunt’s mind is vicious) Oh, your lips are delicious
(But maybe just a cigarette) Never such a blizzard before
(I got to get home) But baby you’d freeze out there
(Say lend me a coat) It’s up to your knees out there
(You’ve really been grand) I thrill when you touch my hand
(But don’t you see) How can you do this to me
(There’s bound to be talk tomorrow) Think of my life long sorrow
(At least they’ll be plenty implied) If you caught pneumonia and died
(I really can’t stay) Get over that old doubt
Oh baby it’s cold
One local radio station has decided they “ought to say no, no no” to the now-controversial Christmas song, “Baby It’s Cold Outside.”
WDOK 102.1, a Cleveland-based station that exclusively plays Christmas music during the holidays, announced this week the song would be removed from rotation after a listener called to say it was inappropriate amid the #MeToo movement.
“Baby It’s Cold Outside” has been a source of debate for the past few years. Some argue it displays key signs of rape culture:
Which got agreeable replies, as expected, such as…

This is offensive to women? Has anybody heard any hip hop or rap song lyrics? Those guys get invited to the White House. And celebrated by the Democrats.

Rape culture . WOW.
But mention real rape cultures in Muslim countries or god forbid rape gangs in London and you……
Well you get it.
I am seriously scared for the young people and for the final years of folk my age. The world has gone utterly insane. People are not people any more. I can’t see good things happening if people behave like this.
What can we do? How can we make human beings human again? How can we wash the Communist out?
