Chorus:
A cig - a - rette that bears a lip - stick's tra - ces,  An air - line tick - et to ro - man - tic pla - ces,
And still my heart has wings.  These Fool - ish Things Re - mind Me Of You.
A ting - ling pia - no in the next a - part - ment,  Those stumb - 1ing words that told you what my heart meant,
A fair - ground's painted swings,  These Fool - ish Things Re - mind Me Of You.
You came,  You saw,  You con - querd me.
When you did that to me,  I knew some - how this had to be.
The winds of march that make my heart a danc - er,  A tel - e - phone that rings but who's to an - swer?
Oh, how the ghost of you clings.  These Fool - ish Things Re - mind Me Of You.
