These Foolish Things

Song Author Holt Marvell , Jack Stachey og Harry Link Performer: Benny Goodman Submitted by: jonagust


[D6]A cigar[Bm7]ette that bears a l[Em9]ipstick´s [A7]traces,
[D6]An airline t[Bm7]icket to ro[E9]mantic p[A7]laces,
[D9]And still my[D7+5] heart has[G6] wings --
[B7]These foolish [E7]things re[A7]mind me o[Em7]f you. [A7]    

[D6]A tinkling pi[Bm7]ano in the next ap[Em9]artment, [A7]    
[D6]Those stumblin´ [Bm7]words that told you [E9]what my [A7]heart meant,
A f[D9]airground´s[D7+5] faded     [G6] swings --
T[B7]hese foolish t[E7]hings r[A7]emind me o[D]f yo[C#7]u.    

[F#m7]You came,[Bm6] you [C#9]saw,     [F#m] you conquered[F#m7] me;     
[A]When [F#m7]you did [Bm7]that to [E9]me,   
I k[A7]new some[Cdim]how this [Em7]had to[A7] be.   

[D6]The winds of M[Bm7]arch that make my h[Em9]eart a [A7]dancer,
[D6]A telephone that r[Bm7]ings but [E9]who´s to[A7] answer?
[D9]Oh, how the[D7+5] ghost of yo[Gm7]u clings --
T[B7]hese foolish[E7] things r[A7]emind me [D]of yo[Cdim]u. [Em7]    [A7]    

(Instrumental Break - 1 Verse)

Bridge 2:
[F#m7]How strange,[Bm6] how s[C#9]weet, [F#m] to find you[F#m7] still!
[A]These t[F#m7]hings are [Bm7]dear to [E9]me;   
They s[A7]eem to [Cdim]bring you [Em7]near to [A7]me.   

[D6]The sigh of [Bm7]midnight trains in[Em9] empty s[A7]tations
[D6]Silk stockings thrown as[Bm7]ide, dance [E9]in-vi-[A7]ta-tions
[D9]Oh, how the[D7+5] ghost of yo[Gm7]u clings --
[B7]These foolish [E7]things [A7]remind me [D]of yo[G]u. [D]    

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.

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.

The sigh of midnight trains in empty stations
Silk stockings thrown aside, dance in-vi-ta-tions
Oh, how the ghost of you clings --
These foolish things remind me of you.
