Paper Moon
Nat King Cole

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

Say it is 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

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
