ITīS  ONLY A PAPER MOON

Close your eyes and make believe

Close your eyes and you will see

All the world is make believe

If you just believe in me.

Say itís only a paper moon,

Sailiní over a cardboard sea,

But it wouldnít be make believe,

If you believed in me!

Yes, itís only a canvas sky,

Hanginí over a muslin tree,

But it wouldnít be make believe,

If you believed in me!

Without your love, oh, itís a honky-tonk parade

Without your love, itís a melody played in a penny arcade

Itís a Barnum and Bailey world,

Just as phoney as it can be,

But it wouldnít be make believe,

If you believed in me! Yeah!

Say itís only a paper moon

Sailiní over a cardboard sea

But it wouldnít be make believe

If you believed in me!

If you believed in me!

If you believed in me!
