Country music entertainers Dolly Parton and Kenny Rogers' "Real Love" duet was another success for the artists. Check out the music video and lyrics here!

Dolly Parton and Kenny Rogers‘ “Real Love” duet was written by David Malloy, Richard “Spady” Brannon, and Randy McCormick. The track was released in May 1985 as the second single and title track from Parton’s Real Love album. “Real Love” became Parton and Rogers’ second country chart-topper as a duet act. The music video for the song was created using footage from the pair’s nine-city U.S. concert tour which also spun off an HBO concert special.

“Real Love” Lyrics

They say that it’s a matter of trusting
Before love has a chance to begin
And it’s never simple
Faithless hearts can cripple
And only a strong love survives
I know they say that it’s a fine line
Between giving up and giving in
But once your heart’s been in it
You just can’t forget it
It’s like nothing that you’ve felt in your life
We got real love
Not infatuation
Real love
Our hearts’ celebration
I love you
Real love
Not an imitation
Real love
You’re my destination
Baby, you and me
We got everything we need
You are such a part of my life
That I can’t remember me without you
And we’ve had our nights
We’ve had our share of fights
But we’ve never thought of giving it up
Oh, you and I we must be dreamers
‘Cause we’re making our dreams come true
I could spend my life
Just holding you so tight
And never, ever get enough
We got real love
Not infatuation
Real love
Our hearts’ celebration
I love you
Real love
Not an imitation
Real love
You’re my destination
Baby, you and me
We got everything we need
We got real love
We got real love
Not infatuation
Real love
Our hearts’ celebration
I love you
Real love
Not an imitation
Real love
You’re my destination
Baby, you and me
We got everything we need
