Pretty Purple Possums
Performed by Angela Mannino

In Louisiana, there is a purple parish, where everything is purple from blue birds to red fish. If you go, wear purple or they won't let you in, 'cause any other color would never ever blend. Pretty purple possums hanging off of purple trees, swingin' by their tails among the purple leaves. Everything is purple beneath the purple skies, and all the creatures watch you with peeping purple eyes.

Purple alligators with real sharp purple teeth - they're eyes above the water - their bodies just beneath - they look for purple frogs sitting on their purple logs. But the purplest things you'll see are... pretty purple possums hanging off of purple trees, swingin' by their tails among the purple leaves. Everything is purple beneath the purple skies, and all the creatures watch you with peeping purple eyes.

Pretty purple toad frogs are eating purple flies. For desert they like to eat purple pumpkin pies. Purple pumpkins grow on purple pumpkin vines. But the purplest things you'll see are... pretty purple possums hanging off of purple trees, swingin' by their tails among the purple leaves. Everything is purple beneath the purple skies, and all the creatures watch you with peeping purple eyes.

Once a purple dinosaur walked the purple earth. Now the purple raccoons are giving purple birth. Even purple insects, like purple honey bees. But the purplest things you'll see are... pretty purple possums hanging off of purple trees, swingin' by their tails among the purple leaves. Everything is purple beneath the purple skies, and all the creatures watch you with peeping purple eyes.

Every purple crawfish has a secret purple wish - avoid the purple curse, getting stuck in reverse. The purple crawfish crawls under purple water falls. But the purplest things you'll see are.... Pretty purple possums hanging off of purple trees, swingin' by their tails among the purple leaves. Everything is purple beneath the purple skies, and all the creatures watch you with peeping purple eyes.
