This song is so cool, as it is a song between two people, a guy and a girl, and the girl wants to leave the guys house for the night. The guy loves her and doesn't want her to go. He pleads his case, in between the lines as she pleads her case. It is a back and forth song and it is so much fun to sing along to. This song was in the movie Elf, when Buddy is in the shower with Jovie. There is a newer version with Idina Menzel and Michael Buble. This song is so iconic with the holiday season.
In these lyrics, the beginning is the girl and then after the comma is the guy. They are both having separate conversations at the same time. These lyrics include stuff like "maybe just a cigarette more, never such a blizzard before." and "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." It is a funny song, and one that can be sung so beautifully in a duet of two lovers.
Down below is the original 1959 song with a group of studio girls that Dean liked to use a lot on many of his records. There is not a video on YouTube of the version that we all hear on the radio almost every day, during this time of year, with Dean and Martina. I hope you enjoy the song and love it as much as I do.
