Well I saw the thing coming out of the sky
It had a one long horn, and one big eye
I commenced to shaking and I said "ooh-eee"
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)
A one-eyed, one-horned, flying purple people eater
Sure looks strange to me! (One eye?)
Well it 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 'cause you're so tough.
I said, Mr. Purple People Eater, what's your line?
He said, it's 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 and roll band.
Well bless my soul, rock and roll, flying purple people eater
Pigeon-toed, undergrowed, flying purple people eater
(We wear short shorts) Friendly little people-eater
What a sight to see!
And then he swung from the tree and he lit on the ground
And he started to rock, really rocking around
It was a crazy ditty with a swinging tune
Sing a boop boop a-boopa lopa lum bam boom.
And then he went on his way, and then what do you know
I saw him last night on a TV show
He was blowing it out, a-really knocking 'em dead,
playing rock and roll music through the horn in his head.
