It's Only A Paper Moon Lyrics - Harold Arlen

Review The Song (1)



music by Harold Arlen.
lyrics by E.Y. (Yip) Harburg

Say, its only a paper moon
Sailing over a cardboard sea
But it wouldn't be make-believe
If you believed in me

Yes, 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
sponsored links
But it wouldn't be make-believe
If you believed in me

(Instrumental break)

(Sing the whole song again)

Thanks, you kind people, for helping me remember not only the lyric but the fact that this great little jazz standard was a creation by the wonderful pen of Harold Arlen and the genius of the late Kip Yarburg!
I needed an attitude adjustment today, and this put me in a better frame of mind.
