Well, this one wraps up fun songs for the month of April. Sheb Wooley wrote and performed this version of the novelty song and launched it in 1958. Wooley based the song on a story his friend’s child told him. You might enjoy listening for the ambiguity in the song about a “one-eyed, one-horned flying purple people eater.”
More recently, the purple creature appeared in a kid’s movie in the 80’s and the Chipmunks performed it in the late 90’s. If you want to know more about Wooley, follow the link in the first paragraph. He led an interesting life.
Did you catch the ambiguity and the nods to other songs of that era?
