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!
