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

It's 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 the penny arcade

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

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

Yeah, It's 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 the penny arcade

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

Now, it wouldn't be make believe
If you believed in me
