And little Early Purly came by in his curly wurly and asked me if I needed a ride.
These are the actual lyrics and also how you spell "Early Purly" and "curly wurly". Of all the nonsensical lyrics in this song, written by Bruce Springsteen but made more absurd by Manfred, this takes the cake. It's not that "Early Purly" or "curly wurly" aren't actually real things, because they are ("Early Purly" is a white flower grown in many gardens -- it's where "Purly" whites with teeth came from and "Curly Wurly" is a type of candy bar still in existence sold by Marathon candy company in many parts of the world, although "Curly Wurly" candy bars aren't as popular as they were in the 1970's when this song was written and first popularized), no that isn't the problem. The problem and the nonsense for this song and line is: How would a flower ride a candy bar and ask anyone for a ride (unless it was a metaphysical reference out of The Boss in regards to in his adolescence eating candy bars to get a sugar rush and then ending up having acne?)

What's that supposed to mean? I don't quite get it.
