Fortune Teller

Went to the fortune teller
To have my fortune read
Didn't know what to tell her
Had a dizzy feeling in my head

Then she looked at my palm
Said "Honey you look kind of warm"
Looked into her crystal ball
And said "You're in love"

I said it could not be so
I'm not tight with any girls I know
She said when the next sun rises
You'll be staring into her eyes

Oh oh oh yeah yeah
Oh oh oh yeah yeah
Oh oh oh yeah yeah
Oh oh oh

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

I hurried back to that woman
As mad as I could be
I told her I didn't see nobody
How could she make 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 fella
I'm married to the fortune teller
I'm happy as we can be
And now I get my fortune told for free

Oh oh oh yeah yeah
Oh oh oh yeah yeah
Oh oh oh yeah yeah
Oh oh oh oh look out
