Paper Moon
Rose/Harburg/Arlen 

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 

Without your love 
It's a honky-tonk parade 
Without your love 
It's a melody played in a penny arcade 

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 
If you believed in me 
If you believed in me
