In light of the controversy over the appropriateness of older holiday songs, we have taken a stab at re-writing one to ensure that the legal niceties are taken care of.
Galbraith Law presents:
Baby it’s cold outside* Remix
I really can’t stay (but baby it’s cold outside)
I’ve got to go away (but baby, please stay)
This evening has been very nice (How can I convince you to stay for a slice?)
My friends will use the ‘Find my Friend’ app (If you stay, I’ll give you a handicap)
Maybe just one more drink (Great, we can write down what we think)
I wish I knew how to break this spell (I wish you’d decide, waiting is hell)
I ought to say no, no, no (you reserve the right to say no)
I ought to say no, no, no (Do you really mean yes?)
You know what I meant (Here please sign this consent)
Will you act like a gentleman, sir? (What exactly do you infer?)
Will we have a safe word? (No that’s absurd)
Your cell phone must be turned off (Don’t worry I don’t post, it doesn’t pay off)
So I must sign here on this dotted line? (Yes indeed that will be fine)
Do I need independent legal advice? (You can waive it, it’s a roll of the dice)
There’s bound to be talk tomorrow (but nobody will really know)
At least there will be plenty implied (but we will know they lied)
I really shouldn’t stay (but baby it’s cold outside)
It seems so innocent (There’s no need to be hesitant)
I’ll stay and earn the award (Perfect, I’ll get the Scrabble board)

This year in lieu of gifts and cards, we will be making a donation on behalf of our clients and colleagues to Little Warriors and Wounded Warriors Canada. Little Warriors is an organization committed to awareness, prevention and treatment of child sexual abuse. Wounded Warriors Canada supports Canada’s ill and injured Canadian Armed Forces members, Veterans, First Responders and their families.
Please note our office will be closed December 21, 2018 at 4:30 pm to January 2, 2019. Have a fantastic holiday and see you in the New Year!
