My body needs calamine lotion
My body's all red you can see.
The flowers I picked for my mommy,
Turned out to be poison ivy!
Dont' touch, don't touch, don't touch the leaves of three, of three!
Don't touch, don't touch, don't touch the leaves of three!

Moving around like the Pop It crew is the way to the perfect dance for you!
Some primates live in trees and some live on the land and in trees. In this episode we meet KINDERZOO’s finest primates like our host Gabby the Gibbon, Deni the Douc Langur, Marty the Mandrill, Colin the Colobus Monkey and Mike the Proboscis Monkey. We also learn how Mike got his large nose in Kinderzoo Tales.
In this episode we go on safari in Africa and meet Polly the Springbok Antelope, Harry the Hippopotamus, Rhiannon the Rhinoceros and we see two of our favourites running around – Debra the Forgetful Zebra and Ryan the Lion. Our KInderzoo Tale this week is about how Gerry the Giraffe got his long neck.

Alternative Lyrics & Related Songs

A very similar version with an acne ending!

My body has calamine lotion
My body's as sore as can be
The flowers I gathered for grandma
Turned out to be poison ivy.

Don't touch, Don't touch
You'll get a rash from ivy, ivy
It will itch bad
And it looks worse than acne.

A possible original version published in Mad Magazine in the 50's

My body has calamine lotion,
My body's as sore as can be.
The flowers I gathered for Granny,
Turned out to be Poison Ivy.
Don't touch, don't touch,
you'll get a rash from Ivy-Ivy
It will itch bad,
and it looks worse than acne!
