​These Foolish Things (Remind Me Of You)

This song is by Etta James and appears on the compilation album The Essential (1993).

A cigarette that bears, 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 stumbling words that told you what my heart meant
A fairground's painted swings
These foolish things remind me of you

You came, oh you saw, you conquered me
When you did that to me, I knew somehow
Oh this had, this had to be

The winds of March that make my, my heart a dancer
A telephone that rings, but who, who's to answer?
And oh how the ghost of you clings
These foolish things remind me of you

You came, and ah, you saw, you conquered me
But when you did that to me, yeah I knew somehow
Oh this had, this had to be

The winds of March that make my, my heart a dancer
A telephone to ring, oh but tell me who's gonna answer?
And oh how the ghost of you clings
These foolish things remind me of you

Woah yeah, these foolish things, these crazy things
These foolish things, these crazy things
All of these things, and oh remind me of you
Oh these foolish things and all of these things
