Looking for novelty song
I have a friend looking for a song. Here is what he sent me:

"This maybe is a little tough. When I was about 8(1970) I heard a song on the radio. It was a novelty song in the Monster Mash vein..about monsters!! It's about a guy who is going crazy (I think) trying to shut these little monsters / green men out of his room. The chorus as it is features the little monsters singing "This is how we/you rock and roll". Sorry I can't provide any further details...this song has been driving me nuts for years and I only ever heard it the once!"

I thought perhaps it could be "Bo Meets the Monster" by Bo Diddley, but I can't find the lyrics.

Any ideas?

Thanks-
Raven

Sounds Like The "Purple People Eater" to me.

Tried to get the lyric for you but for some reason I couldn't copy the text onto my clipboard from the sites I went to.

thanks - but that wasn't it. That doesn't have the "this is how we rock and roll" line

I have "Bo Meets the Monster" and it doesn't have the line "this is how we rock and roll" either.

Thanks for letting me know. At least I can cross that off my list! :-) I appreciate the help.
