      Thelonious Monk - These Foolish Things Música y Letra

      Oh! Will you never let me be?
      Oh! Will you never set me free?
      The ties that bound us
      Are still around us
      There's no escape that I can see
      And still those little things remain
      That bring me happiness or pain
      
      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 fair ground's painted swings
      These foolish things remind me of you
      You came you saw you conquer'd 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
      
      First daffodils 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
