WHITER SHADE OF PALE - Procol Harem

‚Äč

We skipped the light fandango

turned cartwheels 'cross 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

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

 

BREAK 

 

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

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

 

BREAK

 

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

 

BREAK

 

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
