Poison Oak

It grows up like a rose

But everybody knows

You may like it very much

You can look but you better not touch



Poison oak, poison oak

Well late at night when you’re sleeping

Poison oak will come a creepin’ all around


It’s pretty as a daisy

But man it’s really crazy

It’ll really do you in

You let it get on your skin


Measles make you a zombie

Mumps will call you mommy

Chicken pox will make you jump and twitch

A common cold will gruel ya

The whoopin’ cough will fool ya

But poison oak is 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
