"Fortune Teller" as written by and Allen Toussaint....
Went to the fortune teller
To have my fortune read
I didn't what to tell her
I had a dizzy feeling in my head

Said she'd take a look at my palm
Said "Son do you feel kind of warm?"
And she looked into her crystal ball
Said "You're in love."

Said it could not be so,
Not with all the girls I know.
Said when the next one arrives
Looking into her eyes.

I left there in a hurry
Much to my big surprise
The next thing I discovered
The fortune teller told me lies

So I ran back to that woman
Mad as I could be
Told her I didn't see nobody
How she made a fool out of me

At last something shook me
As if it came down from above
And now the fortune teller
And I fell in love

    General CommentThese lyrics are missing the final verse:

    Went to the fortune teller
    Had my fortune read
    I didn't know what to tell her
    I had a dizzy feeling in my head

    Then she took a look at my palm
    She said son you feel kind of warm
    She looked into her crystal ball
    And said you're in love

    How could that be so
    I though of all the girls I know
    She said when the next one arrives
    You'll be looking into her eyes.

    I left there in a hurry
    Looking forward to my big surprise
    The next thing I discovered
    The fortune teller told me a lie

    I hurried back down to that woman
    As mad as I could be
    I said I didn't see nobody
    Why had she made a fool out of me

    Then something struck me
    As if it came from up above
    While looking at the fortune teller
    I fell in love

    Now I'm a happy fellow
    'Cause I'm married to the fortune teller
    I'm happy as we can be
    Now I get my fortune told for free
