"It's Only a Paper Moon" as written by and Peter F/edelman Stuart....
Its only a paper moon
Hanging over a cardboard sea
But it wouldn't be make-believe
If you believed in me

Now, it's 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
No it wouldn't be make-believe
If you believed in me
