The Lyrics

Somehow I feel
She's almost real
Blonde hair, and eyes so blue
Don't have her embrace
But, in my heart, she has a special place..

Mmm, mm, mm, mm
My daydream, I begin it
Mmm, mm, mm, mm
Her smile shows thru a glass that has gin in it

Oh, it's only a Paper Moon
In this new Playboy centerfold
But she wouldn't be make-believe
If she was mine to hold

Sure, she's only a nudie pic
For us dirty old men to see
But she's more than just make-believe
She's here and real to me

She gives me love
In a kinky kind of trade
She gives me love
For a ten dollar bill
At the store where I paid..

In this bedroom's my lonely world
I'm a guy, that no real girls see
But, she wouldn't be make believe
If I was old Hughie..

No, she wouldn't be make believe
If I was old Hughie..

Very clever, AFW. As for paper, I'll stick to the online edition of the current SI swimsuit issue and save trees. :-). Virtual moon.

Nice idea...brought back memories of working at paper drives when I was a kid. We'd wait and hope all day for that one "special bundle" to be dropped off (it always had a Life on top)

Invisible Boy: Maybe Life was on top, but the real life was inside, like the centerfold... :)
