These Foolish Things

This song is by Benny Goodman.

A cigarette that bears a lipstick's traces
An airline ticket to romantic places
A fairground's faded swings
These foolish things remind me of you

A tinkling piano in the next apartment
Those stumblin' words that told you what my heart meant
Oh, how the ghost of you clings
These foolish things remind me of you

You came, you saw, you conquered me
When you did that to me
I knew somehow this 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
