[Kenny Rogers]
Baby when I met you, there was peace unknown
I set out to get you with a fine tooth comb
I was soft inside, there was something going on.

[Kenny Rogers & Dolly Parton]
You do something to me, that I can't explain
Hold me closer, and I feel no pain
Every beat of my heart, we got something goin' on.

[Kenny Rogers]
Tender love is blind, it requires a dedication.

[Kenny Rogers & Dolly Parton]
Honest love needs no conversation
And we ride it together, uh huh,
Making love with each other. uh huh.

Islands in the stream, that is what we are.
No one in between, how can we be wrong.
Sail away with me, to another world
And we rely on each other, uh huh
From one lover to another, uh huh

[Dolly Parton]
I can't live without you if the love was gone
Everything is nothin if youv'e got no one,
And you just walk in the the night
Slowly losing sight of the real thing.

[Kenny Rogers & Dolly Parton]
But that won't happen to us, and we got no doubt
Too deep in love, and we got no way out
and the message is clear, this could be the year for the real thing.

[Dolly Parton]
No more will you cry
Baby, I will hurt you never.

[Kenny Rogers & Dolly Parton]
We start and end as one
In love forever
We can ride it together, uh huh
Makin' love with each other, uh huh.

Islands in the stream, that is what we are
No one in between, how can we be wrong
Sail away with me. to another world
And we rely on each other, uh huh.
From one lover to another, uh huh.

[Kenny Rogers]
(Sail away.)

[Dolly Parton]
(Ohhhhh, sail away with me.)

[Kenny Rogers & Dolly Parton]
Islands in the stream, that is what we are
No one in between, how can we be wrong
Sail away with me, to another world
And we rely on each other, uh huh.
From one lover to another, uh huh.

Islands in the stream, that is what we are
No one in between, how can we be wrong
Sail away with me, to another world
And we rely on each other, uh huh.
From one lover to another, uh huh...
