Purple People Eater is a song featured in Very Silly Songs. It was originally sung by Sheb Wooley.

Lyrics

Well, I saw the thing
A comin' out of the sky
It had a one long horn
And a one big eye
I commenced to shakin'
And I said "Oohwee!
It looks like a Purple
People Eater to me!"

Refrain A
It was a one-eyed, one-horned
Flyin' Purple People Eater

One-eyed, one-horned
Flyin' Purple People Eater (x2)

Sure, it looked strange to me!
(Spoken: One eye!)

Well, he came down to earth
And he lit in a tree
I said, "Mister 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

Refrain A
(Spoken: One horn!)

I said, "Mister Purple People Eater,
What's your line?"
He said,
"It's eatin' purple people,
And it sure is fine."
"What is the reason
That you came to land?"
"I wanna get a job
In a rock 'n roll band!"

Refrain B
Well, bless my soul, rock 'n roll
Flyin' Purple People Eater
Pigeon-toed, under-growed
Flyin' Purple People Eater
He wears (I like) short shorts
A friendly little People Eater
What a sight to see
(Spoken: Oooohhh!)

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, singin'
"Bop-bab-a-loop-a-lap
A-loom-bam-boom!"

Refrain B

(Spoken: Purple people!)

Well, he went on his way
And then what-a you know
I saw him last night
On a TV show
He was blowin' it out,
Really knockin' 'em dead
Playin' rock 'n roll music
Through the horn on his head

(Outro: Saxophone)

Purple People Eater: Boogie woogie!
