VERSE 1:
G                       G^G^G F G^G
She comes on like a rose,           
G                  G^G^G F G^G
But everybody knows.
G                     G^G^G F G^G
She'll get you in Dutch,
        G                            G*       
You can look but you'd better not touch.


CHORUS 1:
       Em          Bm
Poison Ivy, Poison Ivy.            
        Em
Late at night while you're sleeping,
D                         Em   D
Poison Ivy comes creeping around.

G                      G^G^G F G^G
She's pretty as a daisy,            
G                          G^G^G F G^G
But look out man she's crazy.
G                      G^G^G F G^G
She'll really do you in,
       G                        G*
If you let her get under your skin.


CHORUS 2:
       Em          Bm
Poison Ivy, Poison Ivy.

Poison Ivy comes creeping around.


BRIDGE 1:
C
Measles make you mumpy and mumps will make you lumpy,
    G
And chicken pox will make you jump and switch.
  C
A common cold will fool you and whooping cough can cool ya,
    D                                  D^D^D
But Poison Ivy, lord will make you itch.


VERSE 3:

Your gonna need an ocean,             
G                 G^G^G F G^G
Of calamine lotion.
G                                G^G^G F G^G
You'll be scratching like a hound,
    G                            G*
The minute you start to mess around. 


CHORUS 3:
       Em          Bm

NOTES:
1.  "…The second single was the follow-up that set the benchmark. Their cover of Lieber & Stoller's 
"Poison Ivy" is rightfully honoured as Australia's first ever 'beat boom' hit, reaching number one on 
the national charts (displacing The Beatles, at the very moment that the group was making its first and 
only tour of Australia), and remaining an oft-compiled classic of the era. As happened with so many 
other Aussie cover versions of songs made known by significant British groups of the time, The Aztecs' 
version of this Coasters original outshone the record upon which it was based -- the Rolling Stones 
EP rendition. …"   http://www.milesago.com/artists/thorpe.htm
