The Purple People Eater
Sheb Wooley 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 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 '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 horn?)

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 want to get a job in a rock and roll band"

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 (oh!)

And then he swung from the tree and he lit on the ground
And he started to rock, really rockin' around
It was a crazy ditty with a swingin' tune
(Sing a boop-boop, a-boopa lopa 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?)

Well, 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, really knockin' em dead
Playin' rock and roll music through the horn in his head

"Tequila!"

Well I saw the thing comin' out of the sky
It had the one long horn, and 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 laid in the 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 horn?)
I said Mr. Purple People Eater, what's your line?
And he said, "Eatin' purple people and it sure is fine"
But that's not the reason that I came to land

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 laid on the ground
And he started to rock, really rockin' around
It was a crazy ditty with a swingin' tune
"Sing a bop-bop aboopa-lopa, loom 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' purple people eater
Quite a sight to see (purple people?)
Well 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

Still a great true brilliant forever classic always without fail or doubt guaranteed.
A song for all ages and the child inside many of us.
Anyone who doesn't love songs like this are only holding onto something from there past.
They only always see and think of the doom and gloom downside sadness and aren't ever happy with the many great brilliant good things of the world and many great brilliant beautiful people.
Those who aren't ever happy are only holding onto something bad and wrong and they just won't ever let go.
They believe it's only them the wrong and bad happened to and no one else went through that same harm pain.
They believe it's only them on this planet who suffers and no one cares.
There's an illness that those are born with who can't ever laugh. The illness stops them from laughing.
Now that i can understand very well.
But for others who don't and wasn't born with that same illness who just won't laugh at and find songs like this funny.
They who only find funny and laugh at all adults filth stand up disgusting cursed swear shouting screaming.
Out of control rubbish trash garbage.
Did they not ever have a normal growing up childhood.
Was they draged up and not raised up.
There's many men and women who are and was always a young child at heart, spirit, soul,
TV film and pop stars.
There's plenty of them going way on back and still are today in films and TV.
Even radio presenters,
It's who and what they are.
Purple People Eater for the lost child in many of us.
Those of us who are young at heart and do know how to laugh and be happy and most of all have fun.
Not all of us are dull doom gloom and miserable always.
Purple People Eater a song that will go on. As it already has.
Classics don't die out as many believe.

I can't get over how adorable the Purple People Eater is. If it were a stuffed animal, I would buy it.
