A Whiter Shade Of Pale

Annie Lennox

A Whiter Shade Of Pale

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)

There is an unpublished second verse

that they included 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

Ainda Mais Pálida

A Whiter Shade Of Pale

(Um tom mais claro de palidez)

Skipped a light fandango

Dançamos um fandango suave

Turned cartwheels across the floor

Demos cambalhotas pelo chão

I was feelin' kind of seasick

Eu estava me sentindo meio enjoada

The crowd called out of more

A multidão pedia bis

And the room was howling harder

E o salão gritava e gritava

As the ceiling flew away

Enquanto o teto rodava

And when we called out for another drink

E quando pedimos outra bebida

The waiter brought a tray

O garçom trouxe uma bandeja

And so it was later

E então mais tarde

As the mirror told its tale

Enquanto o espelho contava sua história

And then a face at first just ghostly

Um rosto a princípio apenas fantasmagórico

Turned to a whiter shade of pale

Ganhou um tom mais claro de palidez

You said there is no reason

Você disse que não há motivo

And the truth is plain to see

E a verdade é fácil de se ver

But I wondered through my playing cards

Mas eu consultei as cartas do baralho

And would not let her be

E não deixei que ela fosse

One of sixteen vestal virgins

Uma entre dezesseis virgens vestais

Who were leaving for the coast

Que partiam para o litoral

And although my eyes were open

E embora meus olhos estivessem abertos

They might just as well've been closed

Daria no mesmo se estivessem fechados

And so it was later

E então mais tarde

As the mirror told its tale...

Enquanto o espelho contava sua história...
