Baby It's Hot Outside

So, the east coast is currently having some unseasonably warm weather. 

Therefore, I'd like to present a twist on an old holiday date rapey classic:

Baby It's Hot Outside

I really can't stay 
Baby it's warm outside
I've got to go away 
Baby it's hot out there
This evening has been so very nice
It's hot as hell, you need some ice

My kitty will start to worry 
It's too hot to pet something so furry
Kitty will be pacing the floor 
Listen to the air conditioner roar
So really I'd better scurry 
Chunky monkey, please don't hurry
Maybe just a drink or six more 
Put some netflix on while I pour

The neighbors might think 
Baby, it's bad out there
Say, what's in this drink? 
Global warming is mad out there
I wish I knew how 
you're getting sweaty now
To cool myself down 
 Don't you have a summer nightgown?

I ought to say no, no, no 
Mind if I turn the air up?
At least I'm gonna say that I tried
 What's the sense of sweating inside?
I really can't stay 
 Baby don't hold out
Ah, but it's hot outside

I've got to get home 
Oh, baby, there's no breeze out there
Say, lend me your fan 
It's a hundred degrees out there
You've really been grand 
 Sweat when you touch my hand
Why 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 be plenty implied 
If you overheated and died
I really can't stay 
Get over that hold out
Ah, but it's warm outside
Oh, baby, it's hot outside
Oh, baby, it's hot outside

Genius, I know. Apologies for the lack of art on this one. I got my new macbook (hooray!!) but I'm having some trouble making paintbrush work and open my images properly (grumble grumble).

  1. Even with this twist that song still sounds like Bill Cosby's anthem.

  3. PVP pretty much nailed it! Hmmm, perhaps a poor choice of words, but I agree with PVP.

  4. Yeah, there's really no way to make this song sound not rapey, but I still prefer yours to the original.
