Just when you think you have heard everything there are people griping and moaning about the song, BABY IT'S COLD OUTSIDE first recorded by Dean Martin sometime in the 40's. I guess it has some suggestive lyrics in the song and is no longer Politically Correct! Now somebody is going to release the song and make a bundle! If somebody would only give a song of mine that much attention! Uh, they probably will, long after I'm dead!!! Nuts.

Saturday Night Live did a skit with "Bill Cosby" singing that to a woman.

But they used to think Elvis was too sexually provocative with his pelvic moves. Compared to how it is today, he looks like Sesame Street

Just skip the whole "wanna rape ya/can't escape ya" verse and it's fine.

Judge for yerselves!

Baby, Itís Cold Outside
Frank Loesser


[Verse 1]
I really can't stay (But baby it's cold outside)
I've got to away (But 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 worry (Beautiful whats 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)
But maybe just a half a drink more (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, no sir" (Mind if I move in closer?)
At least I'm gonna say that I tried (What's the sense in hurtin' my pride?)

[Chorus]
I really can't stay
(Oh, baby don't hold out)
Baby it's cold out side

[Verse 2]
I simply must go (But baby it's cold outside)
The answer is no (But baby it's cold outside)
Your welcome has been (How lucky that you dropped in)
So nice and warm (Look out the window at the storm)
My sister will be suspicious (Gosh your lips look delicious)
My brother will be there at the door (Waves upon the tropical shore)
My maiden aunt's mind is vicious (Gosh your lips are delicious)
But maybe just a cigarette more (Never such a blizzard before)
I've gotta get home (But baby you'd freeze out there)
Say lend me a comb (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 thing to me?)
There's bound to be talk tomorrow (Think of my lifelong sorrow)
At least there will be plenty implied (If you got pneumonia and died)


[Chorus]
I really can't stay
(Get over that old out)
Baby it's cold
Baby it's cold outside

Knowing when it was written, it seems innocent and simple flirtation. In today's context, its probably sexual harrassment, and the woman would respond "get away you creep" or ill kick you in the Nuts, but shes really
playing along and is enjoying the advances.

People were different, those were more simpler times.

Shocking videos just released by Project Veritas...Both NBC and ABC News revealed to be behind woke rewrite of Baby, It's Cold Outside. Not only was that song a favorite of Harvey Weinstein, Jeffrey Epstein, Prince Andrew, Bill Clinton and Alan Dershowicz on Orgy Island, it also contradicts the woke religion of CLIMATE EXTINCTION-INCTION-inction!!

Further rewrites yet to come, with Diane Warren, Lady Gaga and St. Greta having finalized the new title as Baby, It's July in December, Miami's Flooded and My Non-binary Meat Dress Needs a Kale Transplant.

Morals and values are ever changing. Dont forget at one time in human history, people got married and had kids at 14. Today that would shock us, that's why this song is getting attention because when it was written, sexual harrassment wasn't a big issue. Whether or not it was happening is one thing, its how society views it.

And its ironic that we are probably at the most sexual times in human history due to internet porn and everything else, it's odd that women would be complaining about this song in a day and age where women send naked selfies to everybody they know.

Yes the flirting and seducing days are over for humans. Well, at least for men. The song was used in Neptune's Daughter: http://www.tcm.com/mediaroom/video/969093/Neptune-s-Daughter-Movie-Clip-Baby-It-s-Cold-Outside.html There was a part in the movie where she was seducing him with the song (about half way through the video). Neither situations did the aggressor force intimacy. I think we're all guilty of trying to seduce the opposite sex. And I'm not talking about rape.

Im still waiting for some woman to harrass me.

I find SNL unwatchable but this comes to mind. I did see it flipping channels.
