Hanson – Poison Ivy lyrics

Poison ivy
J. Lieber/ M. Stoller

She comes on like a rose
But everybody knows (don't cha know, don't cha know)
She'll get you in dutch (awww)
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 (pretty as a daisy)
But look out man she's crazy (yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah)
She'll really do you in (really do you in)
If you let her get under your skin (let her get under your skin)
(repeat chorus)

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 (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
(repeat chorus)

Your gonna need an ocean (big, big ocean)
Of calamine lotion
You'll be scratching like a hound (you'll be scratching, you'll be scratching)
The minute you start to mess around
(repeat chorus)
