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.

(Bridge:)
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.

(Instrumental Break - 1 Verse) 

(Bridge 2:)
How strange, how sweet, to find you still!
These things are dear to me; 
They seem to bring you near to me. 

(last verse, Benny Goodman version:)

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.

(last verse, Frank Sinatra version)
The smile of Turner and the scent of roses
The waiters whistling as the last bar closes
The song that Crosby sings
These foolish things remind me of you
