Letra:

We skipped the light fandango
turned cartwheels ‘cross 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 miller told his tale
that her face, at first just ghostly
turned a whiter shade of pale
—— organ solo ——
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 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
And so it was…. (fade)

Apparently there is an unpublished second verse that never made it
onto the record because the record company thought the song was
already too long. i’ve heard they included this verse in concerts.
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 straight ‘way died
