Highlighted       Show chord diagrams
C                          Am     Em
   We skipped the light fandango
 F                              Dm     Dm F
   Turned cartwheels 'cross the floor 
 G                     Em        G7
   I was feeling kinda seasick 
 C                              Am    Em
   But the crowd called out for more 
 F                      Dm      Dm F
   The room was humming harder 
 G                      Em   G7
   As the ceiling flew away 
 C                         Am     Em
   When we called out for another drink 
 F                      Dm
   The waiter brought a tray.


   G         C        Am Em
   And so it was that later 
F                         Dm    Dm F
   As the miller told his tale 
G                               Em       G7
   That her face, at first just ghostly, 
            C     F         C       G7
   Turned a whiter shade of pale.


C                           Am             Em
   She said, "I'm home on a shore leave,"
F                           Dm     Dm F
   Though in truth waved at sea
G                       Em      G7
   So I took her by the looking glass
C                    Am     Em
   Would not let her berathe, 
F                           Dm       Dm F
   Saying, "You must be the mermaid
G                          Em      G7
   That took Neptune for a ride."
C                      Am    Em
   She smiled at me so sadly
 F                           Dm
   That my anger straightway died.


   G         C        Am Em
   And so it was that later 
F                         Dm    Dm F
   As the miller told his tale 
G                               Em       G7
   That her face, at first just ghostly, 
            C     F         C       G7
   Turned a whiter shade of pale. 


C                         Am       Em
   She said, "There is no reason 
F                            Dm     Dm F
   And the truth is plain to see." 
G                            Em             G7
   But I wandered through my playing cards 
C                        Am  Em
   And would not let her be 
F                        Dm        Dm F
   One of sixteen vestal virgins 
G                           Em       G7
   Who were leaving for the coast 
C                            Am Em
   And although my eyes were open
F                                    Dm
   They might have just as well been closed. 

  
   G         C        Am Em
   And so it was that later 
F                         Dm    Dm F
   As the miller told his tale 
G                               Em       G7
   That her face, at first just ghostly, 
            C     F         C       G7
   Turned a whiter shade of pale.


C                  Am            Em
   If music be the food of love
F                        Dm     Dm F
   Then laughter is it's queen
G                            Em        G7
   And likewise if behind is in front
C                        Am      Em
   Then dirt in truth is clean
F                        Dm         Dm F
   My mouth by then like cardboard
G                                     Em    G7
   Seemed to slip straight through my head
C                                Am        Em
   So we crash dived straightway quickly
F                         Dm
   And attacked the ocean bed.


   G         C        Am Em
   And so it was that later 
F                         Dm    Dm F
   As the miller told his tale 
G                               Em       G7
   That her face, at first just ghostly, 
            C     F         C       G7
   Turned a whiter shade of pale.
