Alton Ellis - Whiter Shade Of Pale

You skipped the light fandango,
Turned cartwheels 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 away.
When we called out for another drink,
The waiter brought a tray.

And so it was that later,
As the mirror shows his share.
Let her face, at first just ghostly,
And turn a whiter shade of pale.

(..)

You said, 'There is no reason,
Yet the truth was plain to see.'
But I wandered through my playing cards,
Wouldn't her let her be.
One of sixteen vestal virgins,
Who were leaving for the coast.
And although my eyes were open,
I might just as well have been closed.

And so it was that later,
As the mirror shows his share.
Let her face, at first just ghostly,
And turn a whiter shade of pale.
