"Fairies Wear Boots" as written by and W. Ward F. Iommi....
Goin' home, late last night
Suddenly I got a fright
Yeah I looked through a window and surprised what I saw
A fairy with boots and dancin' with a dwarf,
All right now!

Yeah, fairies wear boots and you gotta believe me
Yeah I saw it, I saw it, I tell you no lies
Yeah Fairies wear boots and you gotta believe me
I saw it, I saw it with my own two eyes,
Oh all right now!

Yeah, fairies wear boots and you gotta believe me
Yeah I saw it, I saw it, I tell you no lies
Yeah fairies wear boots and you gotta believe me
I saw it, I saw it with my own two eyes,
All right now!

So I went to the doctor
See what he could give me
He said Son, son, you've gone too far.
'Cause smokin' and trippin' is all that you do.

    General CommentDon't you hate it when you go in for your check-up and the doctor just says, "Son, son, you've gone too far, 'cause smokin' and trippin' is all that you do--yeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeaaaaaahh"?

    General CommentAmazing song, with some great riffs.

    I love how the person in the song has gone to see the doctor claiming he has seen fairies wearing boots... he doesn't make out the issue that he's seen fairies anyway...it's just the boots part that seems strange to him :)

    Song MeaningI actually read the book "I Am Ozzy" and in it he says still has no idea what that song is about. He did say he wrote it during a night of doing hard drugs and drinking.

    General CommentI hate to disagree with you rockstar001, but I actually think this is one of Sabbath's more self-explanitory songs. It's about some time when Ozzy was drunk or high or something, and he had hallucinations, such as, "Fairy boots were dancing' with a dwarf." The final 4 lines explain it perfectly:

    "So I went to the doctor
    See what he could give me
    He said "Son, son, you've gone too far.
    'Cause smokin' and trippin' is all that you do."

    General Commentthe CORRECT meaning of this song is one night after a show, a couple skinheads (which were not nazies at the time, simply punks) beat the band up, so the band wrote a song about them! Also Prezuiwf was somewhat right.

    General CommentActually, you are both right. Prezuiwf, you have the meaning exactly right, and rockstar001, you are right about the song title.

    General CommentI guess all those explanations are good. I love this song, simply for the kickass guitar solo at the end.
