It was released in 1971 as a B-side for the "After Forever" single.
The song came about when an incident occurred where Geezer and Ozzy were smoking cannabis and saw fairies in boots running around a park, but the most known story around the song was that the band got attacked by skinheads (the skinheads being the fairies in the song), but it's been proven to not be true.
Going home, late last night Suddenly I got a fright Yeah I looked through the window And surprised what I saw Fairy boots were dancin' with a dwarf All right now! Yea, 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 Yeah!
