It’s Only A Paper Moon

1933 – Harold Arlen / Yip Harburg / Billy Rose

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

Yes, its only a canvas sky
Hanging over a muslin tree
But it wouldn’t be make-believe
If you believed in me
[Chorus:]
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
