"It's Only a Paper Moon" was first published in 1933 but artists like Ella Fitzgerald have contributed to its timeless legacy. It was included in the play "A Streetcar Named Desire" by Tennessee Williams.

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
But it wouldn't be make-believe
If you believed in me
