Lyrics by Tony Iommi, Ozzy Osbourne, Geezer Butler, and Bill Ward

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 out dancing 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
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 doc to see what he could give me
He said "Son, son, you've gone too far
'Cause smokin' and trippin' is all that you do"
Yeah!
