Help me here - is 'Baby It's Cold Outside' Rapey?

I included some of the lyrics below, I see persistence & yes pushy & annoying but rapey? Help explain please...

I really can't stay (Baby it's cold outside)
This evening has been (Been hoping that you'd dropped in)
So very nice (I'll hold your hands they're just like ice)
My mother will start to worry (Beautiful what's your hurry?)
So really I'd better scurry (Beautiful please don't hurry)
Well maybe just a half a drink more (I'll put some records on while I pour)
Say what's in this drink? (No cabs to be had out there)
I ought to say no, no, no sir (Mind if move in closer?)
At least I'm gonna say that I tried (What's the sense of hurtin' my pride?)
I really can't stay (Baby don't hold out)
Ah, you're very pushy you know?
I like to think of it as opportunistic
The answer is no (But baby it's cold outside)
The welcome has been (How lucky that you dropped in)
So nice and warm (Look out the window at that storm)
Well maybe just a cigarette more (Never such a blizzard before) (And I don't even smoke)
I've got to get home (Baby you'll freeze out there)
You've really been grand, (I feel when I touch your hand)
I really can't stay (Get over that old out)
Baby it's cold outside
Okay fine, just another drink then
That took a lot of convincing!
