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

These Foolish Things is a song about memories, presented as a list. The introductory verse begins by mentioning a love affair from the past, then the lead-in to the refrain declares, and still those little things remain, that bring me happiness or pain. The refrain then follows an A1-A2-B-A2 form where every A section starts by listing the things, such as the winds of March that make my heart a dancer, and closes with these foolish things remind me of you. A core set of lyrics is nearly always sung.
