Well I saw the thing coming out of the sky It had one long horn and one big eye I commenced to shakin' and I said oo-wee It looks like a purple people eater to me It was a one-eyed one-horned flying purple people eater Sure looks strange to me
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 It was a one-eyed one-horned flying purple people eater It sure looks strange to me
I said Mr Purple People Eater what's your line He said eating 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 Well, bless my soul rock 'n roll flying' purple people eater Pigeon-toed under-growed flyin' purple people eater (He wears short-shorts) friendly little people eater What a sight to see!
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 swinging tune Wop bop a lula wop bam boom Bless my soul, rock 'n' roll flying purple people eater Pigeon-toed under-growed flyin' purple people eater (I like short-shorts!) flying people eater What a sight to see
Well he went on his way and then what do you know I saw him last night on a TV show He was a blowin' it out and really knockin' them dead Playing rock 'n roll music through the horn in his head!
