It is only a paper moon,
Sailing over a cardboard sea,
But it wouldn't be make believe,
If you believed in me.

It is only a canvas sky,
Sailing over a muslin tree,
But it wouldn't be make believe,
If you believed in me.

[Chorus]
Without your love,
It's a honky tonk parade,
Without your love,
It's a melody played,
At 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.

[Chorus]

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 Barnum and Bailey world,
Just as phony,
As it can be,
But it wouldn't be make believe,
If you believed in me.
