"It's Only a Paper Moon" as written by Arno Kammermeier, Peter Hayo and Walter Merziger....
It's only a paper moon
Sailin' over a cardboard sea
But it wouldn't be make-believe
If you believed in me

It's only a canvas sky
Hangin' 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 phoney as it can be
But it wouldn't be make-believe
If you believed in me

Believe in me

Come, see about me

Without your love
It's a honky-tonk parade
And without your love
It's a melody played in a penny arcade

Got to be a Barnum world
Just as phoney as it can be
But it'll never be make-believe
If you believe in me

If you believe in me
If you believe in me
If you believe in me
