Poison Ivy

Album: Lines, Vines and Trying Times (2009)
  • I just got back from the doctor
    He told me that I had a problem
    But I realized it's you

    I try to scratch away the issue
    All I ever get is tissues
    I can't wipe away my tears

    Everyone's allergic to poison ivy
    Everyone's allergic to poison ivy
    Everybody gets the itch
    Everybody hates that
    Everyone's allergic to poison ivy

    Now I found out you were lying
    When you told me you were trying
    Just to medicate the rash

    The tangled vines they got deceiving
    From the lines that now are leading
    To the truth I need to hear

    Everyone's allergic to poison ivy
    Everyone's allergic to poison ivy
    Everybody gets the itch
    Everybody hates that
    Everyone's allergic to poison ivy

    Yeah
    I breakout and I start to shake
    When I hear your name, I can't walk away
    I just can't do it

    I can't stop, even if I tried
    I lay down my pride, I can't walk away

    I get burned and I have to learn
    That the court's adjourned
    I can't walk away

    You tell lines and your tangled vines
    Well I try and just
    Can't walk away

    Poison
    Poison
    Poison ivy

    Everyone's allergic to poison ivy
    Everybody needs a little poison ivy
    Everybody wants a little poison ivy

    Everybody gets the itch
    Everybody hates that
    Everybody needs a little poison ivy

    Everybody gets the itch
    Everybody hates that
    Everybody needs a little poison ivy

    Poison ivy
    Poison ivy
    Poison ivy

    Gimme some poison baby, uh! Writer/s: GREGORY ROBERT GARBOWSKY, JOSEPH ADAM JONAS, NICHOLAS JERRY JONAS, PAUL KEVIN JONAS
