It's Only a Paper Moon
I never feel a thing is real When I'm away from you Out of your embrace The world's a temporary parking place Mmm, mm, mm, mm A bubble for a minute Mmm, mm, mm, mm You smile, the bubble has a rainbow in it 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
