Purple People Eater  Misc. Unsigned Bands

[D]Well, I saw the thing comin' out of the sky,
it had [A]one long horn, [D]one big eye.
I commenced to shakin' and I [G]said "ooh-eee!",
It [A]looks like a purple people eater to [D]me.

CHORUS:
[D]It was a one-eyed, one-horned, flyin' purple people eater.
([A]One-eyed, one-horned, flyin' purple people eater)
A [D]one-eyed, one-horned, flyin' purple people eater.
[A]Sure looks strange to [D]me. (One eye?)


[Eb]Well, he came down to earth and he lit in a tree.
I said, "[Bb]Mr. Purple People Eater, [Eb]don't eat me."
I heard him say in a [Ab]voice so gruff:
NC
"I wouldn't eat you cause you're so tough!"

CHORUS:
[Ab]It was a [Eb]one-eyed, one-horned, flyin' purple people eater.
[Bb]One-eyed, one-horned flyin' purple people eater.
[Eb]One-eyed, one-horned, flyin' purple people eater.
[Bb]Sure looks strange to [Eb]me. (One horn?)


[E]I said, "Mr. Purple People Eater, what's your line?"
He said, "[B]It's eatin' purple people and it [E]sure is fine.
But that's not the reason that I [A]came to land..
I [B]wanna get a job in a rock and roll [E]band."


[E]Well, bless my soul, rock and roll, flyin' purple people eater.
[B]Pigeon-toed, undergrowed, flyin' purple people eater.
([E]We wear short shorts) Flyin' purple people eater..
[B]Sure looks strange to [E]me.


[E]And then he swung from the tree and he lit on the ground,
He [B]started to rock, really [E]rockin' around.
It was a crazy ditty with a [A]swingin' tune..
       [B]                              [E]                            
Sing A bop bop-A-boppa-loppa-lim-bam-boom.



[E]Well, bless my soul, rock and roll, flyin' purple people eater.
[B]Pigeon-toed, undergrowed, flyin' purple people eater.
[E]I like short shorts!..Flyin' little people eater.
[B]Sure looks strange to [E]me. (Purple People?)


[E]And then he [F]went on his way, and then what do ya know?
I [C]saw him last night on a [F]TV show.
He was blowing it out, a'really [Bb]knockin' 'em dead..
Playin' [C]rock and roll music through the horn in his [F]head.[Bb]   [C]  [F]

F // Tequila!


A fifties smash from Kraziekhat.
