The Lyrics

Who can forget the Vikings' all-time defensive line?
Well, we went to Metrodome to see the Vikings
I saw the Purple People Eaters down on the field
A defense who plays this game so rough
And takes down the offense mean & tough

They are the fearsome foursome sacking Purple People eaters
Fearsome foursome sacking Purple People Eaters
Fearsome foursome sacking Purple People Eaters
Sho'nuff good to me (hut-hike!)

The real People eaters of the Defensive line
Can take down the O's attack in 3 seconds time
And when the game's over, tell 'em over the land
They wanna get a job in a hip-hop band

Well bless my soul, pick-and-roll, sacking Purple People Eaters
Big-boned, on a roll, sacking Purple People Eaters
(Let's go Vikings)
Sacking Purple People Eaters
Sho'nuff good to me

On the next game, played here in the Metrodome grounds
The Cowboys needed something to get 1st down
It was a crazy play when the clock resumed
A wop bop a lu bop a wop bam boom! (sfx: whistle)

Well, bless my soul, pick-and-roll, sacking Purple People eaters
Big boned, on a roll, sacking purple people eaters
Let's Go Vikings
Sacking Purple People Eaters
Sho'nuff good to me (Minnesota)

And when the playoffs came, well what'ya know?
I saw 'em last night on the Best Damn show
They were rockin' it out, really knockin' 'em dead
Playing jock 'n' roll music with the horns on their head

(electric guitar solo)
