A whiter shade of pale

多年來, 每次無處躲藏, 便想逃進這首歌裡, 尋求片刻平靜.

不懂為什麼, 即使多年來從來沒搞懂它歌詞到底寫些什麼碗糕 bb call, 甚至懷疑作詞者是否嗑藥胡言亂語.  A whiter shade of pale, 每當 hammond organ 前奏一起, 心中紛亂的思緒便平靜下來.


We 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 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
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

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 away died

If music be the food of love
Then laughter is its queen
And likewise if behind is in front
Then dirt in truth is clean
My mouth by then like cardboard
Seemed to slip straight through my head
So we crash-dived straightway quickly
And attacked the ocean bed
