Poison Ivy Lyrics

by Buddy Guy

Now cats don't touch that gal that bleeds
You'll get wasted down to your knees
I don't like to brag
Don't like to say what I'll do
Cause I'm like poison ivy
I'll break out all over you

Everyday when I shave in my housecoat
Two men have to hold me or I'll cut my throat
Cause I don't like to brag
Don't like to say what I'll do
Cause I'm like poison ivy
I'll break out all over you

Well I found me blade one I could afford
Too short would be knife too long would be a sword
Well I don't like to brag
Don't like to say what I'll do
Cause I'm like poison ivy
I'll break out all over you

Last night some cat got smart with my niece
And now he's under a sign that says rest in peace
Well I don't like to brag
Don't like to say what I'll do
Cause I'm like poison ivy
I'll break out all over you

I don't claim to be bad I don't claim to be strong
I just like to make bad people leave me alone
Cause I don't like to brag
Don't like to say what I'll do
Cause I'm like poison ivy
People I'll break out all over you
