Arlen-Harburg-Rose

Said it's only a paper moon
Sailing over a cardboard sea
But it wouldnt be make believe
If you believed in me.

Say it is only a canvas sky
Hanging over a muslin tree
But it wouldnt be make believe
If you believed in me.

Without your love, its a honky-tonk parade
Without your love, its a melody played in a penny arcade.

Its 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, its a honky-tonk parade
Without your love, its a melody played in a penny arcade.

Yes, its 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.
