"Poison Ivy [Alternate Take[" as written by Jerry Leiber and Mike Stoller....
She comes on like a rose but everybody knows
She'll get you in Dutch
You can look but you better not touch

Poison ivy, poison ivy
Late at night while you're sleepin'
Poison ivy comes a-creepin' around

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

Poison ivy, poison ivy
Late at night while you're sleepin'
Poison ivy comes a-creepin' around

Measles make you bumpy
And mumps'll make you lumpy
And chicken pox'll make you jump and twitch
A common cold'll fool ya
And whooping cough'll cool ya
But poison ivy, Lord'll make you itch!

You're gonna need an ocean of calamine lotion
You'll be scratchin' like a hound
The minute you start to mess around

Poison ivy, poison ivy
Late at night while you're sleepin'
Poison ivy comes a-creepin' around

Measles make you bumpy
And mumps'll make you lumpy
And chicken pox'll make you jump and twitch
A common cold'll fool ya
And whooping cough'll cool ya
But poison ivy, Lord'll make you itch!!

You're gonna need an ocean of calamine lotion
You'll be scratchin' like a hound
The minute you start to mess around

Poison ivy, poison ivy
Late at night while you're sleepin'
Poison ivy comes a-creepin' around

La da la da la da
La da la da la da
La da la da la da
La da la da la da
