Baby It's Cold Outside   (Chic 3017)   Jimmy Mac, Shauna Kaaria
OPENER    Mainstream

Sides face grand square
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, Allemande and weave (Your hands are cold as 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 records on while I pour)


FIGURE    Basic, corner progression

Heads (sides) promenade (halfway you go)
Down the middle square thru (four hands you know)
All the way and then, do the right & left thru
Veer left, and ferris wheel
Centers square thru go 3 hands
Swing the corner all promenade
I really can't stay, (Baby don't hold out)
Ah, but it's cold outside


MIDDLE BREAK    Mainstream

Sides face grand square
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 the spell, Allemande and weave (Your hair looks swell)
I oughtta 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, (Baby, don't hold out)
Ah, but it's cold outside


CLOSER    Mainstream

Sides face grand square
I've gotta go home, (Baby, you'll freeze out there)
Can you lend me your comb? (It's up to your knees out there)
You've really been grand, (I thrill when you touch my hand)

But can't you see? Allemande and weave (Don't do this thing to me)
There's bound to be talk tomorrow, (Think of my lifelong sorrow)
At least there will be plenty implied, (if you caught pneumonia and died)
I really can't stay, (Get over that hold out)
Baby, but it's cold outside
