"Purple People Eater" by Sheb Woolley  

 (4 bars intro: 4/4 time)

Well I saw the thing a-comin' out of the sky

He had one long horn and one big eye.

I commenced to shakin' and I said "Woo-ee!"

It looks like a Purple People Eater to me!

It was a one eyed, one horned

Flying Purple People Eater.

One eyed, one horned

Flying Purple People Eater.

One eyed, one horned

Flying Purple People Eater.

Sure looks strange to me!

(4 bars instrumental)

Well he came down to Earth and he lit in a tree

I said "Mr Purple People Eater...don't eat me!

I heard him say, in a voice so gruff...

"I wouldn't eat you, 'cos you're so tough!

chorus

(4 bars instrumental)

I said, "Mr Purple People Eater

"What's your line?"

"Eating Purple People, and it sure is fine!

But that's not the reason that I came in to land...

I wanna be a singer in a rock and roll band!"

chorus

(4 bars instrumental)

Well, he swung from the tree

And he lit on the ground

And he started to rock, a really rockin' around.

It was a crazy ditty with a swingin' tune...

A wap bap a doo bap, a wap bam boom!

chorus

(4 bars instrumental)

And then he went on his way

And what do you know?

I saw him next day  on a TV show.

He was blowin' it out, really knockin' them dead...

Rock and roll music through the horn on his head!
