She's common like a rose
Everybody knows
She'll get you to look
You can look but you'd better not touch

Poison ivy, poison ivy
Late at night while you're sleeping
Poison ivy come a creeping 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
Late at night while you're sleeping
Poison ivy come a creeping around

Measles make you bumpy
Mumps'll make you lumpy
Chicken pox'll make you jump and twitch
Common cold'll fool you
Whooping cough'll cool you
Poison ivy's love'll make you itch

Gonna need a notion
Calomine lotion
You'll be scratching like a hound
The minute you start to mess around

Poison ivy, poison ivy
Late at night while you're sleeping
Poison ivy come a creeping around

Measles make you bumpy
Mumps'll make you lumpy
Chicken pox'll make you jump and twitch
Common cold'll fool you
Whooping cough'll cool you
Poison ivy's love'll make you itch

Gonna need a notion
Calomine lotion
You'll be scratching like a hound
The minute you start to mess around

Poison ivy, poison ivy
Late at night while you're sleeping
Poison ivy come a creeping around

Late at night while you're sleeping
Poison ivy come a creeping
Around
