A Whiter Shade Of Pale – Procol Harum (1967)

1) We skipped the light fandango,
turned cartwheels across the floor.
I was feeling kinda seasick,
but the crowd called out for more.
The room was humming harder,
as the ceiling flew away.
When we called out for another drink,
the waiter brought a tray.

Refrein : And so it waaaaas, that later,
as the miller told his tale
that her face, at first just ghostly,
turned a whiter shade of pale

2) 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 open
They might have just as well’ve been closed

Refrein : And so it waaaaas, that later (etc.)
