Well i have made it to 50 Posts!
Who would of thought i had that much to talk about? Well there is a lot more to ooze out of this grey matter!
I bet you all thought i was serious all the time, but no i am afraid i tricked you!
On a more serious note, i cant appear to be intelligent all the time it wouldn't be fair or true.
So welcome new readers! don't run away! look at other posts for proof of some intellect, also look in the Blogs I Like Links for Blog Super Stars!
Repeat offenders please enjoy this moment of madness.

So here are the lyrics to the Purple People Eater!


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 people 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' puple people eaterSure looks stange to me. (one eye?)

Well he came down to earth and lit in a treeI said Mr. Purple People Eater don't eat meI heard him say in a voice so gruffI wouldn't eat you cuz you're so tough

It was a one-eyed, one-horned flyin' purple people eaterone-eyed, one-horned flyin' purple people eaterone-eyed, one-horned flyin' purple people eaterSure looks strange to me. (one horn?)

I said Mr. Purple People Eater, what's your lineHe said it's eatin' purple people and it sure is fineBut that's not the reason that I came to landI wanna get a job in a rock and roll band

Well bless my soul, rock and roll, flying purplepeople eater. Pidgeon-toed, undergrowed, flyin'purple people eater (we wear short shorts)Flyin' purple people eatersure looks strange to me

And then he swung from the tree and lit on theground. He started to rock, really rockin' aroundIt was a crazy little ditty with a swingin' tune(sing aboop boop aboopa lopa lum bam boom)

Well, bless my soul, rock and rollflyin' purple people eater.Pigeon-toed, undergrowed, flyin' purple peopleeater.Flyin' little people eaterSure looks strange to me. (purple people?)

And then he went on his way, and then what doyou know. I saw him last night on a TV show.He was blowing it out, a'really knockin' em deadPlayin' rock and roll music through the horn inhis head (clarinet solo) ( Tequila)
Purple People Eater

I hope you enjoyed that! Blame Ruth if you didn't!

  10. PHEW I'd been a bit worried about coming back as I was taking the blame if Purple People eater didn't go down well. Seems a success though so I won't have to go "ANON"

  12. Claire,

    Being old enough to remember the original recording, you should know that 31 Flavors Ice Cream actually came up with a "Purple Eater"

    Place a single scoop of Plum Nuts Ice Cream in a cup. Break off the tip of a sugar cone for the horn and an M & M for the eye.

    The item on QEII on my blog that you wanted is in December. It is called "Happy Accidents".

    Oh that sounds yummy? urggh plum nuts? actually does sound rather fun,
    Going to look at that post now.
    Cheers
