Purple People Eater-crd  Novelty

[D] Well, I saw the the thing comin' out of the sky
It had-a [A7] one long horn and [D] one big eye
I commenced to shakin' and I [G] said: "Oooh-Wee [P]
It looks like a Purple People Eater to me."

It was a [D] one-eyed one-horn flyin' Purple People Eater
[A7] (One-eyed, one-horn, flyin' Purple People Eater)
[D] One-eyed, one-horn flyin' Purple People Eater
[A7] Sure looked strange to [D] me. (One Eye?)

Change to [E] (E/A/B7)
Oh, 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-horn flyin' Purple People Eater
(One-eyed, one-horn, flyin' Purple People Eater)
One-eyed, one-horn flyin' Purple People Eater
Sure looked strange to me. (One Horn?)

Change to [F] (F/Bb/C7)

I said: "Mr. Purple People Eater what's your line?"
He said: "Eatin' Purple People Eater 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.

(Change to E:) (E/A/B7)

And then he swung from the tree and he lit on the ground
And he started to rock, really rockin' around
It was crazy kid, he was a-swingin', too
(With a bop-bop-a-loop-a-lop-a-loom-bam-boo.)


Well, bless my soul, rock and roll, flyin' Purple People Eater
Pigeon-toed, under-growed, flyin' Purple People Eater
(I like short shorts), friendly little People Eater
What a sight to see.

(Change to F:) (F/Bb/C7)

Well, he went on his way and then whatta ya know
I saw 'im last night on a TeeVee show
He was blowin' it out, really knockin' 'em dead
Playin' Rock-and-Roll music through the horn in his head.

Instrumental

(TEQUILA)!
