It's Only A Paper Moon  Ella Fitzgerald

[E6]Say, it's [Fdim7]only a [F#m7]paper moon[B7]
[F#m7]sailing [B9]over a [E]cardboard sea,
but it [E7/G#]wouldn't be [A6]make believe
[F#7/A#]if you [B7] believe in me [E]  [B7]

[F#m7]hanging [B9]over a [E]muslim tree,
[E]but it [E7/G#]wouldn't be [A6]make believe
[F#7/A#]if you [B7]believed in me [E]
[E7]with[A6]out [A#dim7]your [Em7/B]love,
it's a [F#m7]honky [B7]tonk par[E]ade
[E7]with[A6]out [A#dim7]your [Em7/B]love,
it's a [G#m7]melody [C#9]played in a [F#9]penny ar[B9]cade.
[E]It's a [Fdim7]Barnum and [F#m7]Bailey world [B7]
[F#m7]just as [B9]phony as [E]it can be,
but it [E7/G#]wouldn't be [A6]make believe
[F#7/A#]if you [B7]believed in me. [E] [F#m7/D7]
