Perry Como - "It's Only a Paper Moon" lyrics

It’s only a paper moon,
Sailin’ over a cardboard sea,
But it wouldn’t be make believe,
If you believed in me!

Yes, it’s only a canvas sky,
Hangin’ 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 phoney as it can be,
But it wouldn’t be make believe,
If you believed in me!

< instrumental break >

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 phoney as it can be,
But it wouldn’t be make believe,
If you believed in me!
