The Holderness Family have released their own version of “Baby, It’s Cold Outside” after the track sparked a debate over its radio airplay in this day and age.
The 1940s duet is usually performed by a male, who tries to persuade a female to stay at his place because of the wintry weather.
People recently started to question the lyrics, so the Holderness Family switched them up to make it safe for radio again.
Baby, Just Go Outside. We wanted to update this Christmas classic.

The revised song includes the words, “I really can’t stay – OK, you’re free to go. I’ve got to go away – Understood. No means no.”
The clip comes after it was revealed earler this month that Cleveland radio station WDOK Christmas 102.1 had yanked the track after fielding a call from a concerned listener who suggested the song was inappropriate.
