My Heart Was An Island is the only song from Disney's 1960 movie, Swiss Family Robinson. It was sung by Mother Robinson (Dorothy McGuire). The lyrics were composed by Terry Gilkyson.


My heart was an island on a stormy sea
Till my golden ship of dreams came to me
La, la
La, la, la
La, la, la, la
Filled with the wondrous joys that love brings to light
So when you are lonely, under stormy skies above
Your heart will be an island till you find someone to love
My heart was an island on a stormy sea
Till you found my heart and gave your love to me


  • The seven lines of lyrics are only heard once in the film, and not even heard in their entirety. As Mother Robinson is putting up her new curtains, her song trails off when the scene shifts back to Ernst discussing some books he's read. However, the full recording of the song is available on the DVD, allowing us to hear Dorothy McGuire's complete take of the song.
  • The complete recording of "My Heart Was An Island" is available on the Swiss Family Robinson: Vault Disney Collection DVD.
