In the Middle Of An Island
Tony Bennett
Written by Nick Acquaviva and Ted Varnick

Peaked at # 9 in 1957
Competing version by "Tennessee" Ernie Ford managed # 23


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
