In the Middle of an Island

Album: The Good Life (1957)
Charted: 9
  • In the middle of an island
    In the middle of the ocean
    You and I beneath the moonlight
    With just the monkeys and the palm trees

    In the middle of an island
    When it's time to do some kissin'
    Plenty time for lotsa lovin'
    And walkin' barefoot in the sand

    Though there's no island at all
    Just a picture on my wall
    My darlin', how I wish we could be
    (I wish that we could be)

    In the middle of an island
    In the middle of the ocean
    You and I forever, darlin'
    In a paradise for two
    (In a paradise for two)

    Though there's no island at all
    Just a picture on my wall
    My darlin', how I wish we could be
    (I wish that we could be)

    In the middle of an island
    In the middle of the ocean
    You and I forever, darlin'
    In a paradise for two
    (In the middle of the ocean on an island kissin' you) Writer/s: ACQUAVIVA NICHOLAS, TED VARNICK
