Whiter Shade Of Pale

	  		C  C/B               Am    Am/G 
We skipped the light fandango 
F      F/E                   Dm    Dm/C 
turned cartwheels 'cross the floor 
G     G/F           Em      G/D 
I was feeling kinda seasick 
C  C/B               Am    Am/G 
but the crowd called out for more 
F    F/E             Dm    Dm/C 
The room was humming harder 
G       G/F         Em     G/D 
as the ceiling flew away 
C       C/B            Am      Am/G 
When we called out for another drink 
F   F/E              Dm 
the waiter brought a tray 
G7        C C/B    Am    Am/G 
And so it was that later 
F      F/E             Dm   Dm/C 
as the miller told his tale 
G         G/F        Em      G/D 
that her face, at first just ghostly, 
         C      F    C    G  G/F 
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 open 
they might have just as well've been closed 
She said, 'I'm home on shore leave,' 
though in truth we were at sea 
so I took her by the looking glass 
and forced her to agree 
saying, 'You must be the mermaid 
who took Neptune for a ride.' 
But she smiled at me so sadly 
that my anger straightway died 
If music be the food of love 
then laughter is its queen 
and likewise if behind is in front 
then dirt in truth is clean 
My mouth by then like cardboard 
seemed to slip straight through my head 
So we crash-dived straightway quickly 
and attacked the ocean bed
