I was sittin' in my front room
I heard a loud crash
I run to the window to see what was there
Out into trouble my old apple tree
There was a one-eyed-purple-people-eater
Lookin' at me
He yelled, 'Ooh-ooh, bluh-bluh-bluh-bluh'
I jumped in my plane
And I took to the clouds
I had to go see what the mess all about-a
A-this mess my mother did not understand
All these funny lookin' people from another land
He hollered, 'Ooh-ooh, bluh-bluh-bluh-bluh'
My baby standing in the do' and she was hollin' real loud
'Bo Diddley, Bo Diddley, don't leave me in this house'
I said, 'Take it easy baby, you know I've got to go'
I said, 'Lock all the windows and bolt all the do's'
She hollered, 'Ooh-ooh-ooh, bluh-bluh-bluh-bluh'
A-when I saw their master boy, you oughta see
He was a-wiggling and a-grinnin' and a-stigglin' at me
I jumped in my plane and I made it back home
The purple people eaters had my baby and gone
I hollered, 'Ooh-ooh, bluh-bluh-bluh-bluh'.
