It's Only a Paper Moon Submit Correct Lyrics

Submit Corrections Cancel

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, 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 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

But it wouldn't be make-believe
If you believed in me

ROSE, BILLY/HARBURG, E.Y./ARLEN, HAROLD
