It's Only a Paper Moon

Lyrics:E. Y. Harburg ,Billy Rose
Music:Harold Arlen

The song was publishe 1933.

It was written originally for an unsuccessful Broadway play called
The Great Magoo, set in Coney Island.
It was subsequently used in the movie Take a Chance, in 1933,
and Paul Whiteman recorded a successful version, sung by Peggy Healey.
But its lasting fame stems from recordings by popular artists
during the last years of World War II, when versions by Ella Fitzgerald
and the Nat King Cole Trio became popular.
It has endured as a vehicle for improvisation by many jazz musicians.



It is only a paper moon
Sailin' 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.
