Bm6 . Em69 . F#7  intro
Bm . . . . . . . . . . . . . . E . . . . . .F#7
Lullaby of birdland  - that's what I
Bm9 . . . . . . .Gj7 . . . . A7
Always hear when you sigh;
F#m7 . . . . . Bm7
Never in my word land 
Em7 . . . . . . . Em7b5 . . . A47
Could there be ways to reveal   
. . . . G6 . . . . . . F#7
In a phrase how I feel

Bm . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . E . . . F#7
Have you ever heard two turtle doves
Bm9 . . . . . . Gj7 . . . . A7
Bill and coo when they love?
F#m7 . . . . . . . . Bm7
That's the kind of magic
Em7 . . . Em7b5 . . . . . .A47
Music we make with our lips
. . . . . . . . D.Eb.E
When we kiss.

Bridge:
B9 . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . Em7
And there's a weepy old willow -
Em7b5 . . G- . . . . . . . . D . Dj7
He really knows how to cry!
B9 . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .Em7
That's how I'd cry on my pillow
Em7b5 . . . . G- . . . . . . D . . . . . . . . . F#7
If you should tell me farewell and good-bye.

Bm . . . . . . . . .  . . . . E . . . . F#7
Lullaby of birdland - whisper low,
Bm9 . . . . . . . . Gj7 . . . .A7
Kiss me sweet, and we'll go
F#m7 . . . . .Bm7
Flyin' high in birdland,
Em7 . . . .Em7b5 . . A47
High in the sky up above
. . . . . .G6 . . . . . . . F#7
All because we're in love.

You are the breathless hush of evening

That trembles on the brink of a lovely song.

The dearest things I know      are what you are.

When all the things you are are mine.

–  It's Only A Paper Moon –
Billy Rose, E.Y Harburg & Harold Arlen, 1933

G6 . . . .E7 . . Am7 . .D7
Say, it's only a paper moon,
 D . . . D9 . . . G . . . . . . . G7
Sailing over a cardboard sea,
G . . . . E7 . . . . . Am7 . . . D7
But it wouldn't be make believe,
. . D9 . . . D . . . . G . . D7
If you believed in me.

G6 . . . .E7 . . .Am7 . .D7
Yes, it's only a canvas sky,
. D . . . .D9 . . . G . . . . . . . G7
Hanging over a muslin tree,
G . . . . E7 . . . . . Am7 . . . D7
But it wouldn't be make believe,
. . D9 . . . D . . . . G . . G7
If you believed in me.

Bridge:
. . .Am7 .G- . G . . G7
Without your love,
. . . . Am7 . D7 . . . G . . G7
It's a honky tonk parade,
. . .Am7 .G- . G . . G7
Without your love,
. . . . .A9 . . . . . . . . . . . D7+5
It's a melody played at a penny arcade.

G6 . .E7 . . . . . . Am7 . . D7
It's a Barnum and Bailey world,
D . . . . D9 . . . . G . . . . G7
Just as phony as it can be,
G . . . . E7 . . . . . Am7 . . . D7
But it wouldn't be make believe,
. . D9 . . . D . . . . G . . D7
If you believed in me.

{repeat all above, then coda:}
Em9
It's phony it's plain to see
Eb9
How happy I would be
. .Gm6 . . .F-. . . G6 . . Gj7
If you believed in me
