You are like Gibraltar in a raging storm

For the past few days I have been trying to recollect the title of the song that has the line "You are like Gibraltar in a raging storm" or something similar, in it. And I believe this is followed by the line "Are you for real? " But this could also possibly be at the end of the verses of the song.

It is not the Rock of Gibraltar by Nick Cave.

It is a by female singer and for some reason i think of Helen Shapiro . I have looked at the titles of her Best Hits but nothing jolts my mind. So it may not be her. The song was possibly released in the 60's or 70's. Please help.

No chance it's a particular recording of Our Love Is Here to Stay?

Lyrics include, "In time the Rockies may crumble, Gibralter may tumble,There're only made of clay, But our love is here to stay."

No, Unsomnambulist. The song I am thinking implies the guy is steadfast and reliable. Maybe unbelievably so. Hence the line "Are you for real? " :-)

Is it something by Of Montreal? Now that you've posted it, I can totally imagine that sung by Kevin Barnes. In fact, now I have the lost song bug too.

Frankie Laine's "The Rock of Gibraltar" perhaps? - 1952.

Or perhaps "I Go to the Rock" by Helen Shapiro?

Not any of them so far.
Though I must say i quite enjoy Frankie Laine's Rock of Gibraltar :-)
