This song was inspired by the discovery of a purple colored squirrel in Jersey Shore, Pa. There has been much speculation as to the reason for the raspberry rodent's color, and this timely novelty tune from Bill Dann and Jack Servello probe's deeper into some possible reasons. Another excellent video slideshow by Eric Funk..

Thor, the Purple Squirrel from Jersey Shore (Dann/Servello)

Have you heard the news from Jersey Shore 'bout that purple colored squirrel?
That's Jersey Shore Pa. now boys and girls
I couldn't make this up, and friends, you can believe this tale or not
But in the end his love for snacks is what got this critter caught

Now to say this squirrel's a freak of nature would be grossly understated
Some even hint that his odd colored tint is most exaggerated
But a picture's worth a thousand words and he sure looks purple to me
There he was in a trap so colorful, for the whole wide world to see

Squirrels come in different colors like red and black and gray
And sometimes they're albino but it's very rare these days
There's been a lot of talk on how he ended up this shade
But one thing is for certain and that's the commotion that's been made

Chorus:
Move over all you chipmunks and that famous groundhog too
He's the cutest rodent in Pa. and purple through and through
February is his month to shine, that much I can assure
You can call him Thor, the purple squirrel from Jersey Shore

There are many theories about his color and some are rather naughty
Some think he got into pokeberries or fell in a port-a-potty
Some theorize about a dye pak or that he came from global warming
I've even heard that it's a phase as part of his transforming

Yes, opinions vary greatly but no one's laying down their money
Heck, maybe he's a Viking's fan who helps the Cadbury bunny
He might have heard some Hendrix and got caught in a purple haze
In any case he's viral and has the web abuzz these days

A local weather expert thinks he fell into paint or ink
Some say it's from the frackin' water of which he paused to drink
It's a mystery we may never know since I hear they set him free
But we can say that a purple squirrel came to town that some might see

Chorus:
Move over all you chipmunks and that famous groundhog too
He's the cutest rodent in Pa. and purple through and through
February is his month to shine, that much I can assure
You can call him Thor, the purple squirrel from Jersey Shore

Repeat Chorus

Thortalk:


Lookin pretty in purple, eh? Top that, Mr famous groundhog who only comes out once a year..even Marsha in pink can't outdo me..he he....I'll never tell how I turned into a purple prince..a retro rodent for sure,...got places to go, people to amaze..now I'M a squirrel of a different color...te he he..
