Maybe it isn't only a Paper Moon

Guess who got married yesterday?  Yup - first time for both of us.



Here's the Paper Moon card I posted previously.



And some other ones, set to the music.


Here are the lyrics of Paper Moon, written by Harold Arlen, Billy Rose, and E. Y. Harburg.

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

    And I love your red shoes with the two buckles. I had a pair like that in brown when I was a kid, red is much groovier.

  20. I see from this photograph taken in 1886, that you are continuing a well worn tradition. Although this particular "Paper Moon" portrait was related to the then smash hit, The Mikado, I am now wondering if it's origins werer much earlier.

    ReplyDelete
  21. Brett, I thought the tradition was more recent than that. Of course, I also think I'm much younger than I am, so perhaps it's fitting.

    ReplyDelete
  22. Yes, me too. With the "younger than I am" thing, I mean. ;-)
