"Poison Ivy" as written by Jerry Leiber and Mike Stoller....
She comes on like a rose
But everybody knows
She'll get you in touch
You can look but you'd better not touch
Poison Ivy, Poison Ivy
Late at night when your sleeping
Poison Ivy comes a creeping around

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

Measles makes you mumpy
And mumps will make you lumpy
And chicken pox will make you jump and twitch (make you jump and twitch)
A common cold will fool ya
And whooping coughs will cool ya
But poison ivy loves to make you itch

Your gonna need an ocean (gonna need an ocean)
Of calamine lotion (oh, your gonna need it)
You'll be scratching like a hound (boy, you'll be itching)

The minute you start to mess around
Poison Ivy, Poison Ivy
Late at night when your sleeping
Poison Ivy comes a creeping around

Poison Ivy, Poison Ivy
Late at night when your sleeping
Poison Ivy comes a creeping around

Measles makes you mumpy
And mumps will make you lumpy
And chicken pox will make you jump and twitch (make you jump and twitch)

A common cold will fool ya
And whooping coughs will cool ya
But poison ivy loves to make you itch
Your gonna need an ocean (gonna need an ocean)
Of calamine lotion (oh, your gonna need it)
You'll be scratching like a hound (boy, you'll be itching)

The minute you start to mess around
Poison Ivy, Poison Ivy
Late at night when your sleeping
Poison Ivy comes a creeping around
