"Say, What's In This Drink?"

[Music and Smut Watch] It must be Christmas season. It's that time when daily newspapers subject readers to stories that can be shamelessly recycled every three years because news has pretty much ground to a halt, people are too busy to read and there's nothing to write about. Except for shopping, I mean.

First, as if you didn't know, rap music lyrics are one big cesspool of glorifying sex, drugs and general lawlessness.

Things are so bad with the youth today.

I wish these shiftless kids could listen to more music like Frank Loesser's 1944 hit "Baby, It's Cold Outside," typically sung by a sexy male-female duo and recorded by about 1,400 different artists. Not only has it evolved over the years into a Christmas song, but it covers all the naughty bases--just like Kanye West would, if he frequented piano bars.

It's got drinking, which leads to--depending on your point of view--either a sexy seduction or a case of date rape.

Music was so clean back then. Just sayin.

"Baby, It's Cold Outside"

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

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 a little 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
Ahh, but it's cold outside

C'mon baby

I simply must go - Baby, it's cold outside
The answer is no - Ooh baby, it's cold outside
This welcome has been - I'm lucky that you dropped in
So nice and warm -- Look out the window at that storm
My sister will be suspicious - Man, your lips look so delicious
My brother will be there at the door - Waves upon a tropical shore
My maiden aunt's mind is vicious - Gosh your lips look delicious
Well maybe just a half a drink more - Never such a blizzard before

I've got to go home - Oh, baby, you'll freeze out there
Say, lend me your comb - It's up to your knees out there
You've really been grand - Your eyes are like starlight now
But don't you see - How can you do this thing to me
There's bound to be talk tomorrow - Making my life long sorrow
At least there will be plenty implied - If you caught pneumonia and died
I really can't stay - Get over that old out
Ahh, but it's cold outside

Baby it's cold outside

Brr its cold….
It's cold out there
Cant you stay awhile longer baby
Well…..I really shouldn't...alright

Make it worth your while baby
Ahh, do that again….
