It's Only a Paper Moon
Frank Sinatra Lyrics


It's only a papermoon, s
ailin'over a cardboard sea,
But it wouldn't be make believe,
if you believed in me.

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 phoney as it can be,
But it wouldn't be make believe,
if you believed in me.

Nunca siento que algo sea real
I never feel a thing is real

Cuando estoy lejos de ti
When I'm away from you

Fuera de tu abrazo
Out of your embrace

El mundo es un lugar de estacionamiento temporal
The world's a temporary parking place

Mmm, mm, mm, mm
Mmm, mm, mm, mm

Una burbuja por un minuto
A bubble for a minute

Mmm, mm, mm, mm
Mmm, mm, mm, mm

Sonríes, la burbuja tiene un arcoíris
You smile, the bubble has a rainbow in it

Digamos que es solo una luna de papel
Say, its only a paper moon

Navegando sobre un mar de cartón
Sailing over a cardboard sea

Pero no sería una fantasía
But it wouldn't be make-believe

Si crees en mi
If you believed in me

Si, es solo un cielo de lona
Yes, it's only a canvas sky

Colgando sobre un árbol de muselina
Hanging over a muslin tree

Pero no sería una fantasía
But it wouldn't be make-believe

Si crees en mi
If you believed in me

Sin tu amor
Without your love

Es un desfile honky-tonk
It's a honky-tonk parade

Sin tu amor
Without your love

Es una melodía tocada en una sala de juegos.
It's a melody played in a penny arcade

Es un mundo de Barnum y Bailey.
It's a Barnum and Bailey world

Tan falso como puede ser
Just as phony as it can be

Pero no sería una fantasía
But it wouldn't be make-believe

Si crees en mi
If you believed in me
