========

DO MIm LAm DO
We skipped the light fandango
FA LAm REm
Turned cartwheels ‘cross the floor
SOL MIm SOL
I was feeling kinda seasick
DO MIm LAm DO
But the crowd called out for more
FA LAm REm
The room was humming harder
SOL MIm SOL
As the ceiling flew away
DO MIm LAm DO
When we called out for another drink
FA LAm REm
The waiter brought a tray

RITORNELLO

========

SOL DO MIm LAm DO
And so it was that later
FA LAm REm
As the miller told his tale
SOL MIm SOL
That her face, at first just ghostly
DO FA DO SOL
Turned a whiter shade of pale

========

DO MIm LAm DO
She said, there is no reason
FA LAm REm
And the truth is plain to see
SOL MIm SOL
But I wandered through my playing cards
DO SOL LAm DO
And would not let her be
FA LAm REm
One of sixteen vestal virgins
SOL MIm SOL
Who were leaving for the coast
DO MIm LAm DO
And although my eyes were open
FA LAm REm
They might have just as well’ve been closed
