Marlene Dietrich - Want to buy some illusions?


Behind The Scenes of "A Foreign Affair" (1948)


Sobre el compositor de la canción, Friedrich Hollaender (1896-1976), v. kabarett.es


WANT TO BUY SOME ILLUSIONS?

Want to buy some illusions
Slightly used, second-hand?
They were lovely illusions,
Reaching high, built on sand.
They had a touch of paradise,
A spell you can't explain,
For in this crazy paradise
You are in love with pain.

Want to buy some illusions
Slightly used, just like new?
Such romantic illusions,
And they're all about you.
Too bad they all fell apart
Like dreams often do.
They were lovely illusions,
But they just wouldn't come true.

Slightly used, just like new,
Such romantic illusions
And they're all about you.
I'd sell them all for a penny,
They make pretty souvenirs.
Take my lovely illusions,
Some for laughs, some for tears.
