The Purple People Eater
Sha Na Na Lyrics


Woooooooh...

Ah well I saw this thing comin′ out of the sky
It had one long horn and one big eye, ooh
I commenced to shakin' and I said ooh-wee
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
One-eyed one-horned flyin' purple people eater
Sure looks strange to me

One-eyed
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

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-horned
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

Well, bless my soul, rock 'n′ roll, flyin' purple people eater
Pigeon-toed, under-growed, flyin purple people eater
We wear short shorts, friendly purple people eater
What a sight to see, owww

And then he swung on the tree and he lit on the ground
And he started to rock, a really rockin′ around
It was a crazy ditty with a swinging' tune
Sing a bop-boppa-lupa-lopa-loop-bam-boom

Well bless my soul, rock ′n' 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
Well he went on his way and what do you know
I saw him last night on a TV show-acapo
