A Whiter Shade Of Pale
Procol Harum



We skipped the light fandango
Turned cartrwheels across the floor
I was feeling kind of seasick
But the crowd called out for more
The room was humming harder
As the ceiling flew a- way
When we called out for a- nother drink
The waiter brought a tray

CHORUS :
And so it was that later
As the miller told his tale
That her face at first just ghostly
Turned a whiter shade of pale

She said "There is no reason,
And the truth is plain to see,"
But I wandered through my playing cards
And would not let her be
One of sixteen vestal virgins
Who were leaving for the coast
And although my eyes were o- pen
They might just as well have been closed

CHORUS
