#1.(Original keys. Check it out on YouTube.)
D
Well, I saw the thing comin' out of the sky,
       A              D     
it had one long horn, one big eye.
                             G
I commenced to shakin' and I said "ooh-eee!",
   A                                   D
It looks like a purple people eater to me.

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

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

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

And then he swung from the tree and he lit on the ground,
   B                       E
He started to rock, really rockin' around.
                            A
It was a crazy ditty with a swingin' tune..
