TITLE: The Purple People Eater
Lyrics and Chords


Well I saw the thing comin' out of the sky
It had one long horn and one big eye
I commenced to shakin' and I said, hoo-eee
It looks like a purple people eater to me

/ D - / A7 D / - G / A7 A7D /

{Refrain}
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?

/ D - / A7 - / D - / A7 D /

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 'cause you're so tough

/ Eb - / Bb7 Eb / - Ab / Bb7 Bb7Eb /

{Refrain} - One horn?

/ Eb - / Bb7 - / Eb - / Bb7 Eb /

I said Mr. Purple People Eater, what's your line
He said 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 'n' roll band

/ E - / B7 E / - A / B7 B7E /

Well bless my soul, rock and roll, flyin' purple people eater
Pigeon-toed, under-growed, flyin' purple people eater
We wear short shorts - friendly little people eater
What a sight to see - Ow!

/ E - / B7 - / E - / B7 E /

And then he swung from the tree and he lit on the ground
And he started to rock, a-really rockin' around
It was a crazy ditty with a swingin' tune
Sing a bop-bop-a-loopa-loppa-lum-bam-boom

Well bless my soul, rock and roll, flyin' purple people eater
Pigeon-toed, under-growed, flyin' purple people eater
I like short shorts - flyin' purple people eater
What a sight to see - 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

/ F - / C7 F / - Bb / C7 C7F /

I've been trying to forget this song for a long time.....Thanks

One pound of all-purpose porpoise puss
Mentalated monkey meat
Chopped up chicken feet
Eagle eyeballs cooked in glue
I made this sandwich just for you.
