Artists revamp 'Baby it's Cold Outside' lyrics 'to be not creepy'

A pair of Minnesota musicians have put their twist on a catchy but not so up-to-date holiday classic, humorously changing the lyrics of "Baby it's Cold Outside" to emphasize consent.

>> Read more trending stories

The original duet was written in 1944. To summarize the lyrics, a woman sings about wanting to go home after a date with a man, who insists that she stay with him.

The song has been controversial in recent years – and deemed by some to be the worst Christmas song of all time – because of the man's insistence that the woman stay despite her telling him no clearly and repeatedly.

"I ought to say no, no, no sir," the female lead sings. "At least I'm going to say that I tried."

"What's the sense of hurting my pride?" the male lead answers.

Artists Lydia Liza and Josiah Lemanski decided to take back the lyrics, posting what Liza deemed a "less sexually aggressive" version of the song Monday on SoundCloud.

"My mother will start to worry," Liza croons.

"Call her so she know that you're coming," Lemanski responds.

Most of Liza's lines stay true to the original song, although Lemanski's have been drastically changed.

"I wish I knew how to break the spell," Liza sings.

"I don't know what you're talking about," Lemanski answers.

In its first few days online, the song garnered more than 26,000 listens.

Study: Believing in Santa Claus could be damaging to children

A new study poses the theory that kids believing in Santa Claus could be damaging in the long run and cause them to distrust parents.

>> Read more trending stories

CBS News reports that the study by a psychology professor at the University of Exeter in the U.K. hypothesized that the "morality of making children believe in such myths has to be questioned."

"If they are capable of lying about something so special and magical, can they be relied upon to continue as the guardians of wisdom and truth?" the study said. "If adults have been lying about Santa, even though it has usually been well intentioned, what else is a lie? If Santa isn't real, are fairies real? Is magic? Is God?"

In a statement, Professor Christopher Boyle said that children will discover that they've been lied to for years and may wonder about other lies being told to them.

"Whether it's right to make children believe in Father Christmas is an interesting question, and it's also interesting to ask whether lying in this way will affect children in ways that have not been considered," Boyle said.

But a psychology professor at Wake Forest University told CBS News that she disagrees with Boyle's research, saying that she finds nothing wrong with a little make believe.

"I think lie is a harsh word to use here," Deborah Best said. "I think a better way to look at it is that it's a family secret."

Best added that she finds that believing in Santa Claus works as a way to reward good behavior, and it promotes spreading generosity and joy.

"I think most children are disappointed when they find out that their parents are Santa Claus," she told CBS News. "They're disappointed in the magic going away, but I'm not so sure that they're angry at their parents about lying. I don't think I've ever heard that. It's more of a loss of that magical part of childhood."

Best and Mona Delahooke, a pediatric psychologist specializing in early child development, told CBS that they agree with the research saying that presenting Santa as an all-seeing authority is wrong.
