My head is falling off, rolling on the ground
You just standing there and kicking it around
I'd love to see you out your foot in your mouth
But it's already stuck in mine
I guess you're moving up in the world
Would you like a shoeshine?

I love purple pants out loud
And the purple tongue of a Chow-chow
I love purple people eaters
Purple is her favorite color

I spent last night in the pumpkin patch
But you never did arrive
But I swore i saw you you glowing over there
With those Jack-o-Lantern eyes
Well my head it rotted in to the ground
And by morning it was a big orange pumpkin
I can't see any candles or knives
But I know you're up to something

I love purple pants out loud
And the purple tongue of a Chow-chow
I love purple people eaters
Purple is her favorite color

I'm tired of wasting all my breath
When you won't even blow me a kiss
Yeah, I feel like the Abominable Snowman
Cause it's cold and I don't exist
I ain't singing no more songs about you, babe
Gonna sing about Satan and Death
So you better get some fluffy ear muffs on
And some aspirin for your head

I love purple pants out loud
And the purple tongue of a Chow-chow
I love purple people eaters
Purple is her favorite color
