"It's Only a Paper Moon" as written by and Billy/harburg Rose....
So it's only a paper moon
Hanging over a cardboard sea
But it wouldn't be make believe
If you believe in me

Well it's only a canvas sky
Hanging over a muslin tree
But it wouldn't be make believe
If you believe in me

Without your love
It's a carnival parade
Without your love
It's a melody played on a penny arcade

It's a Barnum and Bailey world
Just as phoney as it could be
But it wouldn't be make believe
If you believe in me
