It's Only a Paper Moon (Live from Capitol Studios) - Lyrics

Said it's only a paper moon
Sailing over a cardboard sea
But it wouldn't be make believe
If you believed in me

Say it is only a canvas sky
Hanging over a muslin tree
But it wouldn't be make believe
If you believed in me

Without your love, it's a honky-tonk parade
Without your love, it's a melody played in a penny arcade

It's a Barnum and Bailey world
Just as phony as it can be
But it wouldn't be make believe
If you believed in me

Without your love, it's a honky-tonk parade
Without your love, it's a melody played in a penny arcade

Yes, it's a Barnum and Bailey world
Just as phony as it can be
But it wouldn't be make believe
If you believed in me
If you believed in me
If you believed in me

Writer(s): ARLEN HAROLD, HARBURG E Y, ROSE BILLY
