Please feel free to grab a partner and sing along...I did...




Baby, Its Cold Outside - Louis Jordan & Ella Fitzgerald




I really can't stay
(But, baby, it's cold outside)
I got to go 'way
(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 to worry
(Beautiful, what's your hurry)
And father will be pacing the floor
(Listen to the fireplace roar)
So really I'd better scurry
(Beautiful, please don't hurry)
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 the 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 of hurting my pride)
I really can't stay
(Baby don't hold out)

Ahh, but it's cold outside


I simply must go
(But, 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
(Ooh, your lips are delicious)
Well maybe just a cigarette more
(Never such a blizzard before)
I've got to get home
(But, baby, you'll 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 life long sorrow)
At least there will plenty implied
(If you caught pnuemonia and died)
I really can't stay
(Get over that old doubt)

Ahh but it's cold outside

I really love this song. The boys begged me to stop singing along, but I could not stop.

I am going to chime in a few posts late about the new baby thing.

I never saw myself as a mother. When I got married, I told my husband to be that I did not want children. At the time, he he shared the same sentiement. But after we were married for 5 years, his feelings on the situation changed. One day he told me that if I didn't want to have kids that he was going to leave me for another woman that did. I was devistated. I didn't know what to do. The fact of the matter was that we had been having unprotected sex for 5 years and it had never happened naturally. I have polycystic Ovarian Syndrom. I don't have periods, and therefore, I don't ovulate. I cannot get pregnant without help. Eventually, I went to a fertility specalist and within 6 months we were pregnant. I decided that having a family was important. I love my boys with all of my heart and soul. They are the reason I get up in the morning and place one foot in front of the other. I think that having a sibling would be good for Hedgie. But you have to think about yourself, too. Don't rush into such an important decision, because your life is not the only one effected.

hi leah,
i'm a bit late but i have to say that your quiet day at home sounds oh so much more scintillating than mine....
mine are always overshadowed by guilt at the things i should be doing.

and did everyone agree to scrambled eggs?

love the song!

cheers

This is funny, and I know I'll be the one to get my butt kicked out of here for this, but my daughter calls this song the "date rape" song, due to the one line, "say, what's in this drink?", and how he keeps trying to get her to stay. We are a weird bunch and tend to see the darker humor in things.

Anyway, it's a cute song, when he's not trying to drug her into staying, and getting in trouble with her mother, so thanks for posting it, LOL.

NSCG: you're welcome my dear!

Cece: Thanks for your comment on the Baby Issue (as I like to call it!). And thanks for sharing your journey with me. I do want Hedgie to have a sibling, although I guess it's not necessarily necessary, but...anyway, at this point, I've given it a lot of thought--8 years worth of thought, LOL! After awhile, I began to realize that all the practicalities would have to just be swept away at a certain point--maybe crazy, but true. I figure that anyway, there's no guarantee I'll get pregnant, that it'll work out, etc...

Kylie: I too feel guilty when we have down-time like that, which is why I'm constantly jumping up to put just one more load of laundry in, or dust, or tidy...of course, Sarge feels no such compunction!

And no, no one agreed to scrambled eggs...

Leah said...

Megan: I've never heard the Ray and Betty cover, but I'm going to go check it out! I also love Zooey Deschanel singing it. She really has an incredibly sweet voice.

Leah said...

Karen: Date Rape Song! That is absolutely hilarious. Of course I and Sarge had noticed that--did he slip her some rufies? We decided it was just the magical spell of their chemistry...hmm...

We are the sort to notice the darker before the lighter too, so I'm in total sympathy!!

Nothing like a Sunday morning sing-a-long.
If you could have only witnessed the Mrs. and I duing our duet!
Thanks ... oh ... and yes ... It worked ... I got lucky.

Leah said...

Joe: Good for you! And hey, I got lucky too!
