These Foolish Things

Lyrics:Erich Maschwitz
Music:Jack Strachey, Harry Link

The song was publishe 1936.

It is one of a group of "Mayfair songs",
like "A Nightingale Sang in Berkeley Square".
Maschwitz wrote the song under his pen name, Holt Marvell,
for Joan Carr for a late-evening revue broadcast by the BBC.
The copyright was lodged in 1936.
Maschwitz was romantically linked to the Chinese-American
actress Anna May Wong while working in Hollywood,
and the lyrics are evocative of his longing for her after they parted
and he returned to England.



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 fairground's 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 but who's to answer?
Oh, how the ghost of you clings
These foolish things remind me of you

The first daffodil and long excited cables
And candle lights on little corner tables
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 gulls around it
The beauty that is Spring's
These foolish things remind me of you

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 invitations
Oh, how the ghost of you clings
These foolish things remind me of you

Gardenia perfume ling'ring on a pillow
Wild strawb'ries only seven francs a kilo
And still my heart has wings
These foolish things remind me of you

The smile of Garbo 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

How strange, how sweet to find you still
These things are dear to me
They seem to bring you near to me

The scent of smould'ring 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, just you
