Last week, social media entered a country-wide debate after a Cleveland, Ohio radio station revealed they would no longer play the classic Christmas song, “Baby, It’s Cold Outside.”

As Dearly previously reported, the station made the decision to remove the holiday classic because of the viral #MeToo movement.

According to reports, some people find the lyrics of the song “inappropriate.” Certain verses of the song written in 1944 read:

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) (Why thank you)
I ought to say no, no, no sir (Mind if move in closer?)
At least I’m gonna say that I tried (What’s the sense of hurtin’ my pride?)
I really can’t stay (Baby don’t hold out)
Baby it’s cold outside

Now, a family known for their viral music videos, many of them parodies, is going viral once again after the patriarch of the family rewrote the lyrics to “Baby, It’s Cold Outside.”

Watch the video below to listen to the new lyrics:

Baby, Just GO Outside

Baby, Just Go Outside. We wanted to update the Christmas classic.

The Holderness Family captioned the video:

Baby, Just Go Outside. Are these lyrics better?

Instead of:

I really can’t stay (Baby it’s cold outside). I gotta go away (Baby it’s cold outside).

This evening has been (Been hoping that you’d dropped 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).

Penn Holderness sings:

I really can’t stay (OK, you’re free to go.) I’ve got to go away (Understood. No means No.)

This evening has been (Super appropriate), So very nice (But I do understand consent.)

My mother will start to worry (Definitely text her right now). My father will be pacing the floor (Here’s the coat and there is the door.)

The Original:

So really I’d better scurry (Beautiful please don’t hurry). Well maybe just a half a drink more (I’ll 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 move in closer?) At least I’m gonna say that I tried (What’s the sense of hurtin’ my pride?)

I really can’t stay (Baby don’t hold out). Baby, it’s cold outside.

Holderness’s version:

So really, I’d better scurry (I am gonna stand over here), Well maybe just a half a drink more (You are in control of this thing.)

The neighbors might think (Invite them over if you like). Say, what’s in this drink? (Um, nothing but Sprite.)

I wish I knew how (Just walk right out the door), To break the spell (I do know how to spell H-A-R-A-S-S-M-E-N-T).

I ought to say “No, no, no sir” (I hear you loud and clear). At least I’m gonna say that I tried (I am trying super hard)

I really can’t stay (Please, just go out…) Ah, but It’s Cold Outside! (Baby, Just Go Outside!)

The Original:

I simply must go (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 that storm).

There’s bound to be talk tomorrow (Think of my lifelong sorrow!) At least there will be plenty implied (If you caught pneumonia and died!)

I really can’t stay (Get over that old out). Baby, it’s cold… Baby, it’s cold outside.

Holderness’s version:

I simply must go (Uber is right Outside). The answer is NO (Seriously. Right outside.)

Your welcome has been (I’ll walk you to the curb), So nice and warm (But totally consensual).

There’s bound to be talk tomorrow (Hopefully not about us). At least there will be plenty implied (Please do not imply anything).

I really can’t stay (Baby, just go out…) Baby, It’s cold…Baby, It’s Cold Outside! (Baby, Just Go Outside!)

Over four million people have since watched The Holderness Family’s video, and almost 27,000 people have shared it.

What do you think of the Holderness’s response to the backlash “Baby, It’s Cold Outside” has been receiving?

    Insanity!

    Creative, funny, and not at anyone’s expense. It’s certainly no replacement for the real thing, but this is a far better response than an anti-feminism rant (there are far better times and places for such things).
