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

And it's only a canvas sky
Hanging over a muslin tree (oh,yeah)
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 the penny arcade

It's barnum and bailey world
Just as phony as it can be (I know)
But it wouldn't be make believe
If you believed in me
