THESE FOOLISH THINGS

A cigarette that bears a lipstick's traces

An airline ticket to romantic places

And still my heart has wings

These foolish things remind me of you.

 

A tinkling piano in the next apartment

Those stumblin' words that told you what my heart meant

A fairground's faded swings

These foolish things remind me of you.

 

You came, you saw, you conquered me

When you did that to me

I knew somehow it had to be.

 

The winds of March that make my heart a dancer

A telephone that rings but who's to answer?

Oh, how the ghost of you clings

These foolish things remind me of you.

 

Oh, how the ghost of you clings.

These foolish things, 

These foolish things… remind me of you

These foolish things…you

These foolish things…you

These foolish things…

…remind me of you!
