Well I saw the thing comin' out of the sky
It had one long horn, one big eye
I commenced to shakin' and I said "ohh-ee"
It looks like a purple people eater to me
It was a one-eyed, one-horned, flyin' purple people eater
Pigeon-toed, undergrowed, flyin' purple people eater
We wear short shorts
Flyin' purple people eater
Sure looks strange to me
I said Mr Purple People Eater, what's your line
He said it's eatin' purple people and it sure is fine
But that's not the reason that I came to land
I wanna get a job in a rock and roll band
The year was 1958 and Sheb Wooley had a huge hit on the radios all over the USA. It was a silly song that got into your head and wouldn't leave.
Fast forward to 2010 and take a look at the Purple People Eater that lives in our house. This is Morgan's favorite toy. She carries it all over the house, into the yard, when she goes for rides in the car and she sleeps with it.
It originally had three horns and two feet, but she fixed that. In fact it will soon be footless as she's working on amputating his remaining foot.
Morgan wishes everyone a happy Dogs On Thursday.
