Marvell, Strachey & Link

Marvell, Strachey & Link's, "These Foolish Things"
Better Lyrics:
A pair of socks beside an old french letter
A touch of syphillis that won´t get better
Oh! how my foreskin stings
These foolish things remind me of you
Original Lyrics:
A cigarette that bears a lipstick traces
An airline ticket to romantic places
And still my heart has wings
These foolish things remind me of you
