Cold Outside was featured in the film "Side Effects" in 2005, starring Katherine Heigl. The song is a tongue and cheek view of typical midwestern wintry weather.

1. Shivering as I enter the dark days of winter
Batten the hatch till Springtime reappears
I feel so trapped up my freedom’s been snapped up--At this time of year
When it’s cold outside ----The wind is blowin’
Cold outside----And it’s snowin’
How could Old Man Winter Be so Bold-----
Oh ---it’s cold ....outside

2. Where is the pain reliever to cure cabin fever
& muffle the sound of snow plows in my ear
The agitation of light deprivation . . .At this time of year
When it’s cold outside ---I start to worry
Cold outside ---so I’ll retire early
This is winter Ho Ho Ho ---

I do feel better grumbling ‘bout the weather
Like that Geezer- Old Ebenezer
Why do I need a reason to censor the season When my bones are freezin’
And it’s cold outside ---where are my mittens
Cold outside - Don’t wanna be frostbitten
Mark my words I told you so---Oh it’s cold
Bridge BREAK

3.Needin’ rejuvination --a change of location
From the inclement skies that haunt me here
Time I was fleein’ to the warm Caribbean . . . At this time of year
When it’s cold outside-- Aren’t things are improvin'
Cold outside-..........So long I best be movin’..............(on)
Life is short --it’s time to go--
Oh it’s cold ...
Make time for cuddlin’--- It’s cold outside ...
Amidst the shovelin’
I’ve got ice dams on my roof . . . I’m telling you the truth
It’s Cold ...............
Summertime . . . .
