Perry Como ~ Mr. Saturday Night!

 

Original RCA Recording

The Island 
Of Forgotten Lovers
I am sailin' on away, on heartbreak bay, 
to the island of forgotten lovers! 
Since my best friend an' you, became untrue 
there's nothin' else for me to do! 
 
There are no chains to hold a love grown cold, 
that's what your heart soon discovers! 
So, I am sailin' on away, on heartbreak bay, 
to the island of forgotten lovers!  ( . . . lovers, forgotten love! )
 
And I will stay away ( I will stay away!! ) until the day 
my broken heart recovers! 
But now I'm sailin' on away, on heartbreak bay, 
to the island of forgotten lovers!
 
. . . to the island of forgotten lovers!
