Maurice Hines – “It’s Only a Paper Moon”


It is only a paper moon Hanging over a cardboard sea But it wouldn’t be make-believe If you believed in me It is only a canvas sky Sailing 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 Play, baby! It is only a paper moon Hanging over a cardboard sea But it wouldn’t be make-believe If you believed in me It is only a canvas sky Sailing 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 But it wouldn’t be make-believe If you believed in me.
