"I really can't stay" - "But baby, it's cold outside" sang Frank Loesser and his wife in 1944, and just about everyone from Ella Fitzgerald, to Bing Crosby, to Ray Charles, to Tom Jones, to Sigourney Weaver, to the Bare Naked Ladies since.

It describes a scene between two characters described in the score as "The Mouse" and "The Wolf". "The Mouse" is visiting "The Wolf", and as the weather gets colder outside, he tries to persuade her to stay a while (for whatever reason), and it's strongly implied that she really wouldn't mind. Typically the Mouse is the female voice, but whether it should remain so is up to you...

So, during a winter following HBP, Harry and Ginny find themselves playing out that scenario. One ("The Mouse") is visiting the other ("The Wolf"); the Wolf wants the Mouse to stay, and the Mouse would be quite amenable to that were it not for something that makes them think it wouldn't be a very good idea ("there's bound to be talk tomorrow", for instance).
