Song Meaning
Verse 1
Say, it's only a paper moon
Sailing over a cardboard sea
But it wouldn't be make-believe
If you believed in me
Verse 2
Yes, it's only a canvas sky
Hanging over a muslin tree
But it wouldn't be make-believe
If you believed in me
Verse 3
Without your love
It's a honky tonk parade
Without your love
It's a melody played in a penny arcade
Verse 4
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
Verse 5
Say, it's only a paper moon
Sailing over a cardboard sea
But it wouldn't be make-believe
If you believed in me
Verse 6
Yes, it's only a canvas sky
Hanging over a muslin tree
But it wouldn't be make-believe
If you believed in me
Verse 7
Without your love
It's a honky-tonk parade
Without your love
It's a melody played in a penny arcade
Verse 8
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
Verse 9
It's phony it's plain to see
How happy I would be
If you believed in me
