A Whiter Shade of Pale

We skipped the light fandango 
And turned cartwheels across the floor 
I was feeling kind of seasick 
The crowd called out for more 
The room was humming harder 
As the ceiling flew away 
Whe we called out for another drink 
The waiter brought a tray 

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 
Would not let her be 
One of sixteen vestal virgins 
Who were leaving for the coast 
At the moment my eyes were open 
They might just as well have been closed 

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
