Your lips look vicious

Lyrics from ‘Baby, it’s cold outside’ (1944):

“(I really can’t stay) But, baby, it’s cold outside
(I’ve got to go away) But, baby, it’s cold outside
(This evening has been) Been hoping that you’d drop in
(So very nice) I’ll hold your hands they’re just like ice

(…)

(The neighbors might think) Baby, it’s bad out there
(Say what’s in this drink) No cabs to be had out there
(I wish I knew how) Your eyes are like starlight now
(To break this spell) I’ll take your hat, your hair looks swell

(I ought to say no, no, no, sir) Mind if I move in closer
(At least I’m gonna say that I tried) What’s the sense of hurting my pride
(I really can’t stay) Baby, don’t hold doubt
[Both] Baby, it’s cold outside

(My sister will be suspicious) Gosh your lips look delicious
(My brother will be there at the door) Waves upon a tropical shore
(My maiden aunt’s mind is vicious) Gosh your lips are delicious
(But maybe just a cigarette more) Never such a blizzard before…”

One of the creepiest songs of all times. ‘What’s in this drink?’ Yikes. Comedy duo Key & Peele has made a fantastic parody on this (“Just stay the night”, see below). Honestly people, comedy is gonna saves us all.

I started by (kinda) copying the following work by Andy Warhol, that was apparently created as a backdrop for his painting exhibition “Paintings for Children” at Bruno Bischofberger in Zurich (source). (source for image below)

Andy Warhol: Fish (1983)

So I drew two happy fish, and a one very unhappy fish. Which We Will Not Mention Anymore (but if you insist on seeing unhappy fish, you can still see ’em in my sketchbook, my Insta Stories).

I photographed my drawing and edited it digitally. I copied the happiest fish  twice in the digital work. And just for fun, I added these lyrics. And a very lame pun (a kinda play on words / pronunciation that only Dutch people will get).

(even Dutch people might not get it)

Either way, this was fun, thank you very much.
