Sabbaths 1st few LPs have stood the test of time and gone down in history as some of our greatest heavy metal ever made.

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. . .

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.

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.

The best part of the song is when he screams, "'Cause smokin' and trippin' is all that you do!"

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.

weird druged up song but not bad. I kind of like it.
Report as inappropriate
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".
