I feel absolutely honoured and privileged to have been asked to be a part of this project! I was welcomed with open arms to hang around and be a part of the recording process even when I wasn’t needed vocally and it really made this whole experience feel like a real team effort. Thank you to everyone at I AM Studios, Gary Kennett and Jim Killgore for their tireless support both now and in all of our future projects. Also, this would not have been the same without Jamie Prokop’s amazing talent both as a singer and a producer. We will make a country singer out of him yet, and I think this is a pretty good start! To the musicians, you made this song what it is and I am in awe of your talent! Great job everyone!

Jamie Prokop
From conception to finality it was a pleasure to be involved in such a project with fantastic musicians, friends and talent. This song could not have been brought to fruition if not for Gary Kennett and Jim Killgore at I AM Studios. I am thankful for their partnership and faith in me as a producer/musician/performer in bringing this song to life. Kira-Jade Roebuck was also an absolute pleasure to work with as well and I look forward to working with her in the near future on her own project. A shout-out must be given to Murray Williams and his band as well as the other musicians that helped take my ideas and this song to the next level. I tip my hat to you all.

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 – Just listen to the fireplace roar
So really I'd better scurry – Sweetheart what’s your hurry
Well maybe just a few minutes more – The wind is howling outside the door

The neighbors might think - Baby, it's bad out there
Hey, was that just a wink - 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 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

I simply must go - Baby, it's cold outside
The answer is no – Baby , so 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 – Maybe I’m too ambitious
My brother will be there at the door - Waves upon a tropical shore
My maiden aunt's mind is vicious – Couldn’t get more auspicious
Well maybe just a little while more - Never such a blizzard before

I've got to go home - Baby, you'll freeze out there
Say, lend me your coat – 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 be plenty implied - If you caught pneumonia and died
I really can't stay - Get over that hold out
Ahh, but it's cold outside, cold outside

Well I guess you should go – But baby I’ll freeze out there
I could lend you my coat – It’s up to my knees out there
It’s really been grand – Hey don’t let go of my hand
But don’t you see – How can you do this to me
I tried to say no no no – I really don’t have to go
At least then I can say that I tried – My you’re really hurting my pride
You really should go go go – Baby it’s cold
Baby it’s cold, cold outside

Honey I gotta get outta here
Come on Darlin’
Come on what?
Just give me five more minutes
You sure know how to wear a girl down don’t ya
Yes I do
