This song was always a fun one to sing. It lets you know just how far back girls were wearing short-shorts and shows a whimsey that may have taken drugs to induce.
In my mind the one-eyed, one horned, flying, purple people eater has always been the epitomy of jealousy. It makes sense doesn't it? Jealousy eats at you, closes one eye to common sense, rams with the likes of a horn and flies out of nowhere!
Although in the song they make him look so cuddly and cute. Jealousy is deeply painful and blinding.
The next time you begin to feel the pangs of envy or jealousy do yourself a favor. Think of the good things in life. Remember how you are blessed and realize that you should be happy for that person you are feeling jealous of. Who knows, they could be feeling the very same about you.
Now, what a waste is that?
