[Voice Over]
Somewhere in the middle of nowhere sits a tiny chipmunk, Simon Seville, waiting for a sign from outer space.

[Simon, shouting; excitedly]
Alvin! Theodore! We've made contact!

[Simon]
Well I saw the thing comin' out of the sky,
It had the one long horn,
One big eye.
(Ooh!)
I commenced to shakin',
And I said "Ooh-eee,"
It looks like a purple people eater to me.

It was a one-eyed,
One-horned,
Flyin' purple people eater!

[Alvin and Theodore]
One-eyed,
One-horned,
Flyin' purple people eater!

[Simon]
A one-eyed,
One-horned,
Flyin' purple people eater!
Sure looks strange to me.

[Alvin and Theodore]
One eye?

[Simon]
Well he came down to earth,
And lit in a tree.
I said, "Mr. Purple People Eater don't eat me!"
I heard him say in a voice so gruff;

[Alien]
I wouldn't eat you 'cause you're so tough!

[Simon]
It was a one-eyed,
One-horned,
Flyin' purple people eater

[Alvin and Theodore]
One-eyed,
One-horned,
Flyin' purple people eater!

[Simon]
One-eyed,
One-horned,
Flyin' purple people eater!
Sure looks strange to me!

[Alvin and Theodore]
One horn?

[Simon]
I said, "Mr. Purple People Eater,
What's your line? "
He said, "It's eatin' purple people and it sure is fine!
But that's not the reason that I came to land,
I wanna get a job in a rock 'n roll band. "

[Alvin, techno]
I wanna,
I wanna,
I-I-I wanna,
Rock 'n roll.

[Simon]
Well bless my soul,
Rock 'n roll,
Flying purple people eater.
Pigeon-toed,
Undergrowed,
Flyin' purple people eater!

[Chipmunks]
We wear short-shorts!

[Simon]
Flyin' purple people eater!
Sure looks strange to me!

[Alvin and Theodore]
Aaah!

[Simon]
And then he swung from the tree,
And he lit on the ground.
He started to rock,
Really rockin' around,
It was a crazy ditty with a swingin' tune,
Singin' "Aboop boop aboopa lopa lum bam boom!"

[Chipmunks]
Well, bless my soul,
Rock n' roll,
Flying purple people eater!
Pigeon-toed,
Undergrowed,
Flyin' purple people eater!

[Alien]
I like short-shorts!

[Chipmunks]
Flyin' little people eater!

[Simon]
Sure looks strange to me!

[Alvin and Theodore]
Purple people?

[Simon]
And then he went on his way,
And then what ya know?
I saw him last night on a tv show!
He was blowing it out,
A'really knockin' 'em dead!
Playin' rock 'n roll music through the horn in his head!

(Saxaphone solo)

[Simon, background to the beat]
(Yeah! X30)
Purple people eater!
Purple people eater!
Purple, purple, purple people eater!

[Chipmunks]
It was a one-eyed,
One-horned,
Flyin' purple people eater!

One-eyed,
One-horned,
Flyin' purple people eater!
Sure looked strange to me!

[Simon]
Well, bless my soul,
Rock 'n roll,
Flying purple people eater!
Pigeon-toed,
Undergrowed,
Flyin' purple people eater!

One eyed,
One horned,
Flying purple people eater!
Sure looked strange to me!
Yeah, sure looked strange to me!
