It's Only A Paper Moon Lyrics

by Harry Nilsson

Arlen-Harburg-Rose

Say its 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.

It's a honky-tonk parade
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.
