All black Sabbath rocks.after all these years. Even zakk wylde likes to jam out with the great ozzy
Ozzy is the rock god ..my idol

Instrumental l y , Fairies Wear Boots gets better as it progresses. I wish the producers could re-engineer the song in reverse.

long-armed devil likes
I have the un-ignorable urge to smoke and trip my balls off right now.
YEEEAAAAAAHH ! ! ! !
Im confused...y o u dont like Swift and Beiber , mentioning them on this page is obviously out of place, the proverbial punchbowl turds , I wouldn't have thought they wrote their own music never heard a single note from either

@captainmoon - At the end of my post I put 3-:D:D:D That means its a joke. I thought that having to spell out 'sarcasm' would have been too self explanatory. But if your misunderstan d i n g is not why you called me stupid then please elaborate. . .
sullivan4til e
@captainmoro n . PLEASE ENLIGHTEN ME CAPTAIN MORON. IOW, PLEASE EXPLAIN SINCE I AM STUPID.
I'm not sure if you're being a troll or just being plain stupid my dear sullivan...

Yeah, this is a good song, but nothing beats Taylor Swift when it comes to song writing. She won another grammy for best songwriter. Wow, what a composer she is. Even better then Justin Beiber. After them comes this album from Sabbath:D. :D. :D.
Great song era 70s sick
That was a great song in a perfect moment
etiserna
Black Sabbath rocks!!!
jjj112348
Black sabbath is awsome!!!
Awwwew yehhhhh
Ozzie in his prime seeing Sabbath do that live in the 70's smoking and tripping is all I did! Those where days


bryanseay928
Man what happened to music nothing even comes close to the vibes off this music
Ozzy has one of the most beautiful voices in metal. Seen them 3 times. 3 of the most funnest days I can nor reamber. Lol
mrazmeritsa
One of the all time best intros to a song EVER!!!
Black Sabbath is timeless. Took my 11 year old son to Ozzy concert a few months ago, his first concert. Ozzy was great, did a decent amount of Sabbath tunes. They did Fairies . . . good stuff!

If you don't have it already, get the Black Box. All Ozzy Sabbath - full albums, come on, it's sick! I tell you no lies. But I have to tell you my favorite part is when he screams "Alright Now" - right before the Dr. lyrics.
lemonlawatto r n e y
I love this f**king song!
The best part of the song is when he screams, "'Cause smokin' and trippin' is all that you do!"
Lets see, I was 14 when I bought We Sold Our Soul for Rock and Roll and am now 47. Mr. Benoit, you are on the proper path.
jeffro66sell s
yo lucas benoit...I am 44 years old and I started to listen to Black Sabbath when I was your age, maybe a few years earlier, hell I can't remember that far back. Lemme tellya kid...keep rockin' & yu'll always be ok by me!!!! Justin Beiber is a pipskweek, I woulda beat his a** when I was a kid!
remingtr
Since the beginning of time, man's greatest ambition has been to blot out the light comming from the sun. However, Black Sabbath's inception creating heavy metal and all that comes after...... fulfills man's 2nd greatest ambition.
all my homies say "ahh!"
im 13, me n my friends listen to Black sabbath, we try to bring the awesomeness back i n a world of the girl-voiced justin bieber and retards who get a hit from a beat and some drunken lyrics
awesome
hooftey01
Black Sabbath forever kicks total A**
the5rojos9
one of my fav.black sabbath songs, kick a**.cause too much drinking is all i do yeah!!!!!!!!
Drummer by heart here, this is a kick azz song. Grew up in the 70's what can I say.
Why does it have two names
"weird drugged up song, not bad"-tboe104 , what AREN'T you smokin, this song is perfect...
tboe104
weird druged up song but not bad. I kind of like it.
see, that makes sense because - well, that's what the lyrics to the song say too.
they also say that ozzy went to the doctor - can anyone vouch for that, or is the "doctor" mentioned really anton levay or some s**t like that?
In the liner notes to Black Box: The Complete Original Black Sabbath (1970-1978), Tony Iommi states that the song title comes from when "Geezer And Ozzy were smoking outside and witnessed fairies in the park, running around wearing boots. As far as Tony knows, it didn't come from an attack from skinheads." <1> Afterwards, they wrote the lyrics to "Fairies Wear Boots." <2> The song contains an instrumental at the beginning called "Jack the Stripper".

dayumn, this song is sweet, all around rockin...
aaaaaaaahhhh h h h h h h * * * * *
Interesting story behind this song. Fairies wear boots is a reference to an a**-kicking that the Sabs gave a gang of so-called street toughs in England who wore high boots as part of their gang trademark. They were surrounded by 20 of them one night after a gig in the early years. They beat them up and as they scampered off, Ozzy and the boys were yelling at them that they're a bunch of fairies.
dude its not a dota reference this song was from the 70s... dota wasnt around then
