"Poison Ivy" as written by Nicholas Jonas, Joseph Jonas, Kevin Jonas Ii and Greg Garbowsky....
I just got back from the doctor
He told me that I had a problem
But I realized it's you

I try to scratch away the issue
All I ever get is tissues
I can't wipe away my tears

Everyone's allergic to poison ivy
Everyone's allergic to poison ivy
Everybody gets the itch
Everybody hates that
Everyone's allergic to poison ivy

Now I found out you were lying
When you told me you were trying
Just to medicate the rash

The tangled vines they got deceiving
From the lines that now are leading
To the truth I need to hear

Everyone's allergic to poison ivy
Everyone's allergic to poison ivy
Everybody gets the itch
Everybody hates that
Everyone's allergic to poison ivy

Yeah
I breakout and I start to shake
When I hear your name, I can't walk away
I just can't do it

I can't stop, even if I tried
I lay down my pride, I can't walk away

I get burned and I have to learn
That the court's adjourned
I can't walk away

You tell lines and your tangled vines
Well I try and just
Can't walk away

Poison
Poison
Poison ivy

Everyone's allergic to poison ivy
Everybody needs a little poison ivy
Everybody wants a little poison ivy

Everybody gets the itch
Everybody hates that
Everybody needs a little poison ivy

Everybody gets the itch
Everybody hates that
Everybody needs a little poison ivy

Poison ivy
Poison ivy
Poison ivy

Gimme some poison baby, uh!

    General CommentI love JB now...but this song had me laughing so hard. The lyrics…this part:

    And now I found out you were lying
    When you told me you were trying
    Just to medicate your rash

    Er… sounds like she has crabs or something and gave it to him. It doesn’t help that the first two lines are:

    I just got back from the doctor
    He told me that I had a problem

    General Commentgreat song!!
    i love the "everybody gets the itch, everybody hates that..." we all know what they wanna say...
    The JoBros said they wrote it because poison ivy is something thats easy to get and everyone hates/ thinks they're allergic to even though noones really allergic.. aka girls who they just fall into but dont really want
    the only person they know who doesnt say they're allergis.. John Taylor!

    General CommentI think its because Taylor Swift had chlamydia and she spread it to Joe, its so obvious:

    I just got back from the doctor
    He told me that I had a problem

    I tried to scratch away the issue
    All I ever get is tissues

    And now I found out you were lying
    When you told me you were trying
    Just to medicate your rash

    thats why Joe hates Taylor, because he got the chlamydia
    Everybody gets the itch
    Everybody hates that -----

    All that 27 second phone call Joe made to Taylor when they were breaking up was the first two lines...

    General CommentI really don't like this song at the moment,
    but maybe it's a grower.

    It just makes me laugh so much. The words are ridiculous.
    So far this album isn't looking quite as good as the last!
    Still love 'em though.

    General CommentMaybe people dont really know the real story behind this song. But i'll try to explain.. The poison ivy is Camilla Belle.

    You can compare this song lyric with JB's other song entitled "Move on". They have the sIMILAR rhyme. Move on lyric was once written by joe to reffer hiss ex, A.J. mICHALKA. And Poison ivy must be about jOE'S GIrl too. Remembering that Joe once was off with Camilla for a while when they didnt seem to be together and Camilla hang out with other man, rob pattinson in a party, but then they got back together again, until they're finally really2 over. AT THAT TIME, JOE WROTE THIS SONG WITH nick and kevin, telling about her.






    I tried to scratch away the issue
    All I ever get is tissues
    So I can wipe away my tears.....................(these parts are about joe finding the fact that Camilla hang out with the other man, and he felt quite sad).


    Everyone's allergic to Poison Ivy
    Everybody needs a little Poison Ivy
    Everybody wants a little Poison Ivy
    Everybody gets the itch
    Everybody hates that
    Everybody needs a little Poison Ivy
    ( These parts are about Camilla who's like poison ivy, poisonous but intoxicating.. joe was messed up with her, bcause she's his first adult girlfriend and finding so much different things to do from the previous relationship with his teenage gfs. But joe loved her in a way...taht's why she wants her and need her).



    This meaning i found after research....my opinion
