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 stumbling words that told you, what my heart meant,
A fairgrounds painted swings, 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, and who’s to answer?
Oh, how the ghost of you clings, these foolish things
Remind me of you,

Gardenia perfume lingering on a pillow,
Wild strawberries only seven francs a kilo,
And still my heart has wings, these foolish things
Remind me of you,

The park at evening when the bell has sounded,
The ‘Ile de France’ with all the girls around it,
The beauty of spring, these foolish things
Remind me of you,

I know that this was bound to be,
These things have haunted me,
for you’ve entirely enchanted me!

The sigh of midnight trains in empty stations,
Silk stockings thrown aside, dance invitations,
Oh, how the ghost of you clings, these foolish things
Remind me of you,

First daffodils, and long excited cables,
And candlelight on little corner tables,
And still my heart has wings, these foolish things
Remind me of you,

The smile of Garbo, when the scent of roses,
The waiters whistling as the last bar closes,
The song Crosby sings, these foolish things
Remind me of you,

How strange, how sweet, to find you still,
These thingsare dear to me,
that seem to bring you so near to me!

The scent of smouldering leaves, the wail of steamers,
Two lovers, on the street, who walk like dreamers,
Oh how the ghost of you clings, these foolish things
Remind me of you,
