Here's the lyrics and chords to Poison Ivy.
This is taken from the Coaster's 45 rpm reissue
with "Idol with the Golden Head" on the flip side.
I've changed the key from Ab to G.
The chord transpositions are at the end.

                Poison Ivy
           by  Lieber and Stoller

[Intro] G  G F G  G  G F G

[Verse]
G                     G F G
She comes on like a rose 
G                 G F G
but everybody knows
G                  G F G
she'll get you in Dutch
         G
you can look but you'd better not touch

[Chorus]
       Em           Bm
Poison Ivy   Poison Ivy      
        Em
Late at night while you're sleeping
A                        Em    D
Poison Ivy comes creeping around

[Verse]
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

[Bridge]
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
But Poison Ivy lord will make you itch

[Verse]
Your gonna need an ocean           
of calamine lotion
You'll be scratching like a hound
the minute you start to mess around

[CHORUS] - [BRIDGE] - [REPEAT LAST VERSE] - [CHORUS]

La la la la
la la la la
la la la la
