Rawhide / How the West Was Won album at
Sheb Wooley's, "Purple People Eater"
The Lyrics:
Pigeon-toed, undergrowed, flyin' purple people eater (also) Sure looks strange to me (also) He started to rock, really rockin' around (also) Playin' rock and roll music through the horn in his head
This old novelty hit has alliteration all over the place! p-p-p, s-s, r-r-r-r, h-h, and so on.
