Album Version

Commentator:
Somewhere in the middle of nowhere sits a tiny chipmunk, Simon Seville, waiting for a sign from outer space.

Simon:
Alvin! Theodore! We've made contact!

Well I saw the thing comin' out of the sky
It had the one long horn
One big eye (ooh!)
I commenced to shakin'
And I said "Ooh-eee"
It looks like a purple people eater to me

It was a one-eyed
One-horned
Flyin' purple people eater

Alvin & Theodore:
One-eyed
One-horned
Flyin' purple people eater

Simon:
A one-eyed
One-horned
Flyin' purple people eater
Sure looks strange to me

Alvin & Theodore:
One eye?

Simon:
Well he came down to Earth
And lit in a tree
I said, "Mr. Purple People Eater don't eat me!"
I heard him say in a voice so gruff

Alien:
I wouldn't eat you 'cause you're so tough

Simon:
It was a one-eyed
One-horned
Flyin' purple people eater

Alvin & Theodore:
One-eyed
One-horned
Flyin' purple people eater

Simon:
One-eyed
One-horned
Flyin' purple people eater
Sure looks strange to me

Alvin & Theodore:
One horn?

Simon:
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

Alvin:
I wanna get a job in a rock 'n roll band".

I wanna
I wanna
I-I-I wanna
Rock 'n roll

Simon:
Well bless my soul
Rock 'n roll
Flying purple people eater
Pigeon-toed
Undergrowed
Flyin' purple people eater

The Chipmunks:
We wear short-shorts!

Simon:
Flyin' purple people eater
Sure looks strange to me

Alvin & Theodore:
Aaah!

Simon:
And then he swung from the tree
And he lit on the ground
He started to rock
Really rockin' around
It was a crazy ditty with a swingin' tune
Singin' "Aboop boop aboopa lopa lum bam boom!"

The Chipmunks:
Well, bless my soul
Rock n' roll
Flying purple people eater
Pigeon-toed
Undergrowed
Flyin' purple people eater

Alien:
I like short-shorts!

The Chipmunks:
Flyin' little people eater

Simon:
Sure looks strange to me

Alvin & Theodore:
Purple people?

Simon:
And then he went on his way
And then what ya knew?
I saw him last night on a TV show
He was blowing it out
A'really knockin' 'em dead
Playin' rock 'n roll music through the horn in his head

(yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah)
(yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah)
(yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah)
(yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah)

Purple people eater (eater, eater)
Purple people eater (eater, eater)
Purple, purple, purple people eater (eater, eater)

The Chipmunks:
It was a one-eyed
One-horned
Flyin' purple people eater

One-eyed
One-horned
Flyin' purple people eater

(Repeat)

Sure looked strange to me

Simon:
Well, bless my soul
Rock 'n roll
Flying purple people eater
Pigeon-toed
Undergrowed
Flyin' purple people eater

One-eyed
One-horned
Flying purple people eater
Sure looked strange to me
Yeah, sure looked strange to me!
