The Fairy Feller’s Master-Stroke

Words and music by Freddie Mercury

He’s a fairy feller
Ah ah the fairy folk have gathered
Round the new moon’s shine
To see the feller crack a
nut
At night’s noon time
To swing his axe he swears
As he climbs he
dares
To deliver the master stroke

Ploughman wagoner will’ and
types
Politician with senatorial pipe
He’s a dilly dally oh
Pedagogue
squinting wears a frown
And a satyr peers under lady’s gown
He’s a dirty
fellow
What a dirty laddie-oh

Tatterdemalion and the
junketer
There’s a thief and a dragonfly trumpeter
He’s my hero
ah
Fairy dandy tickling the fancy
Of his lady friend
The nymph in
yellow (can we see the master stroke)
What a quaere fellow

Ah ah ah ah
ah ah
Ah ah ah ah ah ah
Soldier sailor tinker tailor ploughboy
Waiting
to hear the sound
And the arch magician presides
He is the
leader

Oberon and Titania watched by a harridan
Mab is the queen and
there’s a good apothecary man
Come to say hello
Fairy dandy tickling the
fancy
Of his lady friend
The nymph in yellow
What a quaere
fellow
The ostler stares with hands on his knees
Come on mister
feller
Crack it open if you please
