Sharon Needles – Purple People Eater Lyrics

Purple People Eater By Sharon Needles 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

Well he came down to earth and he hid 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 too 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

I said 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 this land
I want to get a job in a rock and roll band”

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

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
(boop-boop, a-boopa lopa lum bam boom)

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

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 on his head

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 good to me
