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

          這首是英國搖滾團Procol Harum(1967年成立)在首張專輯Procol Harum (1967)的歌曲,這歌曲是他們其中的團員在舞會上,聽到一位男土跟女士說"You've turned a whiter shade of pale,",歌曲的曲調則用了巴哈的G弦之歌。
