    Lyrics

    Well I saw the thing comin' out of the sky
    It had the one long horn, one big eye
    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
    (One-eyed, one-horned, flyin' purple people eater)
    A one-eyed, one-horned, flyin' purple people eater
    Sure looks strange to me (One eye?)

    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 cuz you're so tough

    It was a one-eyed, one-horned, flyin' purple people eater
    One-eyed, one-horned flyin' purple people eater
    One-eyed, one-horned, flyin' purple people eater
    Sure looks strange to me (One horn?)

    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 and roll band

    Well bless my soul, rock and roll, flyin' purple people eater
    Pigeon-toed, undergrowed, flyin' 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
    He started to rock, really rockin' around
    It was a crazy ditty with a swingin' tune
    Sing a boop boop aboopa lopa lum bam boom

    Well bless my soul, rock and roll, flyin' purple people eater
    Pigeon-toed, undergrowed, flyin' purple people eater
    (I like short shorts!)
    Flyin' little people eater
    Sure looks strange to me (Purple People?)

    And then he went on his way, and then what do ya know
    I saw him last night on a TV show
    He was blowing it out, a'really knockin' em dead
    Playin' rock and roll music through the horn in his head
