  • 3 You Better Move On

  • She comes on like a rose
    And everybody knows
    She'll get you in dutch
    You can look but you'd better not touch

    Poison ivy, poison ivy
    Well late at night when you're sleeping
    Poison ivy comes a creeping all 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
    Well late at night when you're sleeping
    Poison ivy comes a creeping all around

    Measles make you bumpy and mumps'll make you lumpy
    And chicken pox'll make you jump and twitch
    A common cold'll cool you but whooping cough'll fool you
    But poison ivy's gonna make you itch

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

    Poison ivy, poison ivy
    Well late at night when you're sleeping
    Poison ivy comes a creeping all around

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

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

    Poison ivy, poison ivy
    Well late at night when you're sleeping
    Poison ivy comes a creeping all around

    La la la la
    La la la la
