Music inspired by Bo Diddly


I see purple . . . all around me
I see purple . . . all around me

Grape juice dribbling down my chin
Thunder clouds a-rolling in
Wandering through the lilac trees
They smell so sweet they make me sneeze – Achoo!

Eggplants have a purple skin
Like the bruise I’ve got on my shin
Riding on my mountain bike
I saw a purple monster. Yikes!

The monster was sitting all alone
Wearing violet robes and amethyst stones
Orchids braided in its hair
I crashed my bike and sat and stared

Monster saw me and said, “Hello
Can you tell me where the lilacs grow?”
I pointed and it walked away
What a crazy purple day
