From Andy Kirk and His Twelve Clouds of Joy, 1936-1937, Chronological Classics vol. 573.

Blue illusion,
Pardon this rude intrusion,
Why did you start by thrilling my heart,
In playing the part of love?

Blue illusion,
Why did you bring confusion?
Why must you stay while love flies away,
To brighten the gray above?

My hopes were high, my heart couldn't wait,
The love couldn't die, it seemed my fate,
But love went past, your spell was fast,
I beg you to depart for you can't last!

Blue illusion,
Why bring a sad conclusion?
Take wings of flight, back into the night,
And give me the right to love.

Blue illusion,
Why bring a sad conclusion?
Take wings of flight, back into the night,
And give me the right to love.
Give me the right to love!
