The classic Christmas song "Baby It's Cold Outside" has gotten an update for a 21st-century audience after singer-songwriters Lydia Liza and Josiah Lemanski changed the song's lyrics to emphasize the importance of consent. Liberal activists are outraged and insist the song should be banned because it promotes sexual harassment and non-consensual sex, so Liza and Lemanski got to work re-imagining the song originally written in 1944 by Frank Loesser. Although the melody is still the same, the lyrics strike an entirely new chord. Check out the alternative lyrics below as well as Fox News Chief Washington Correspondent James Rosen and America's Newsroom anchors Bill Hemmer and Martha MacCallum's reactions on Kilmeade and Friends earlier.
I really can't stay/Baby I'm fine with that
I've got to go away/Baby I'm cool with that
This evening has been/Been hoping you get home safe
So very nice/I'm glad you had a real good time
My mother will start to worry/Call her so she knows that you're coming
Father will be pacing the floor/Better get your car a-humming
I ought to say no, no, no/you reserve the right to say no
At least I'm gonna say that I tried/you reserve the right to say no
I really can't stay/...Well you don't have to
Baby it's cold outside
I've got to get home/Do you know how to get there from here
Say, where is my coat/I'll go and grab it my dear
You've really been grand/We'll have to do this again
Yes I agree/How 'bout the Cheesecake Factory?
