Fortune Tellers have been popular for many centuries. In the last century, some very well-known artists have dedicated a song about the future predictions that were given by a fortune teller. Amongst others were the Rolling Stones in 1963, The Who in 1970 and Robert Plant in 2007.
Here we give the lyrics to see what appealed to these famous artists about the fortune teller. It tells the story of a young man who is pleased to learn from a fortune teller that he will find love "When the next one arrives". Next day he returns, angry that nothing has happened, but falls in love with the fortune teller. They get married and are as "happy as we could be", and he gets his "fortune told for free.""
Went to the Fortune teller
To have my fortune read
I didn't what to tell her
I had a dizzy feeling in my head
Said she'd take a look at my palm
Said "Son do you feel kind of warm?"
And she looked into her crystal ball
Said "You're in love."
Said it could not be so,
Not with all the girls I know.
Said when the next one arrives
Looking into her eyes.
I left there in a hurry
Much to my big surprise
The next thing I discovered
The fortune teller told me lies
So I ran back to that woman
Mad as I could be
Told her I didn't see nobody
How she made a fool out of me
At last something shook me
As if it came down from above
And now the fortune teller
And I fell in love
Now I'm a happy fellow
Well, I am married to the Fortune teller
Well happy as me can be
Now I get my fortune told for free
