Poison Ivy
She comes up a rose
And everybody knows
She'll get you in dutch
Well, you can look, but you'd better not touch

Poison Ivy
Poison Ivy
Well, late at night when you're sleepin'
Poison Ivy comes a-creepin' all around

She's pretty as a daisy
But look out, man, she's crazy
She'll really do you in
If you let her get under your skin

Poison Ivy
Poison Ivy
Well, late at night when you're sleepin'
Poison Ivy comes a-creepin' all around

Measles make mumpy
Mumps'll make you lumpy
Chicken pox will make you jump and twitch
Common cold'll cool you
Whooping cough will fool you
But Poison Ivy, Lord, will make you itch

You're gonna need an ocean
Of Calamine lotion
You'll be scratching like a hound
The minute you start to mess around

Poison Ivy
Poison Ivy
Well, late at night when you're sleepin'
Poison Ivy comes a-creepin' all around

Poison Ivy
Poison Ivy
Well, late at night when you're sleepin'
Poison Ivy comes a-creepin' all around

Measles make mumpy
Mumps'll make you lumpy
Chicken pox will make you jump and twitch
Common cold'll cool you
Whooping cough will fool you
But Poison Ivy, Lord, will make you itch

You're gonna need an ocean
Of Calamine lotion
You'll be scratching like a hound
The minute you start to mess around

Poison Ivy
Poison Ivy
Well, late at night when you're sleepin'
Poison Ivy comes a-creepin' all around
