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

Yes, it's only a canvas sky
Hanging over a muslin tree
But it wouldn't be make believe
If you believe in me

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

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

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

It's only a canvas sky
Hanging over a muslin tree
But it wouldn't be make believe
If you believe in me

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

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

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

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

It wouldn't be make believe
If you believe in me
It wouldn't be make believe
If you believe in me
