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 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 wouldnt 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
Flyin purple people eater
Sure looks strange to me

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 lum boom

Well bless my soul 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

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 knockin them dead
Playin rock and roll music through the horn on his head.
