Some argue the lyrics have not aged well in the aftermath of #MeToo, like the woman telling the man "no, no, no" and asking "what's in this drink?"

You know, 'this drink is going straight to my head so what's in this drink?' Back then it didn't mean you drugged me".
Say what's in this drink? "This song is included in his very successful 1959 "Winter Romance" album and I'm very proud that it has become an evergreen favorite that is played every holiday season", Deana told FOX News.
