Deana Martin is not a fan of John Legend and Kelly Clarkson‘s new version of “Baby, It’s Cold Outside.”

“I don’t think that John Legend should’ve changed the lyrics. I think leave a tender moment alone,” she told Good Morning America on Friday of the revised track, which replaces controversial sexist lines like “Beautiful, what’s your hurry?” to “I’ll call a car and tell ’em to hurry.”

Deana is the daughter of the late Dean Martin, whose velvety 1959 rendition on his album A Winter Romance helped popularize the Frank Loesser-written song for the holidays. It has been covered many times by everyone from Dolly Parton and Rod Stewart, to Michael Bublé and Idina Menzel, to Zooey Deschanel and Leon Redbone for Elf.

Chrissy Teigen Gushes Over John Legend After He Misses His Flight to be With Her

  Chrissy Teigen Gushes Over John Legend After He Misses His Flight to be With Her Grab the tissues! This is a story straight out of a romantic comedy.It's no secret that Chrissy Teigen and John Legend are the definition of relationship goals. And on Sunday, the two proved why they continue to be everyone's favorite celebrity couple.

In recent years, the lyrics have raised eyebrows with lines like, “Say, what’s in this drink?” and a back-and-forth where a man tries to convince a woman to stay the night despite her continued clear protests — for example, “I really can’t stay,” and “The answer is no.”

But despite Legend, 40, being a “fantastic” musician and “a great writer,” Deana, 71, thinks the tradition of the song should be left as is, opining to Good Morning Britain earlier this week, “You do not change the lyrics to this song. [Legend] has made it more sexual with those words that he has just said.”

John Legend Is Revamping Troublesome Christmas Classic, ‘Baby It’s Cold Outside’

  John Legend Is Revamping Troublesome Christmas Classic, ‘Baby It’s Cold Outside’ John Legend will be releasing a deluxe version of his Christmas album, A Legendary Christmas, on November 8th. The expanded LP will include four new tracks, including a duet of “Baby It’s Cold Outside” with Kelly Clarkson with updated lyrics by Legend and comedian Natasha Rothwell (Insecure). The “reimagined” duet aims to modernize the song’s outdated and sometimes troubling lyrics, with the male suitor now graciously calling his female partner a cab: “I really can’t stay (Baby it’s cold outside)/I’ve gotta go away (I can call you a ride)/This evening has been (So glad that you dropped in)/So very nice (Time spent with you is paradise)/My mother will start to worry (I’

Deana calls the remake by Legend and Clarkson, 37, “absurd,” continuing, “He’s stealing the thunder from Frank Loesser’s song and from my dad. He should write his own song if he doesn’t like this one, but don’t change the lyrics. It’s a classic, perfect song.”

She also says her father, who died in 1995 at the age of 78, would’ve agreed with her about the modernized track. “I think that John should’ve just left it alone,” Deana adds.

Her comments echo those she gave on Fox & Friends in December, when the actress and singer spoke out after some suggested “Baby, It’s Cold Outside” promotes rape culture, calling the claims “outrageous.”
