Lyrics to "Gilligan's Island"

Just sit right back

And you'll hear a tale

A tale of a fateful trip,

That started from this tropic port,

Aboard this tiny ship.


The mate was a mighty sailin' man,

The Skipper brave and sure.

Five passengers set sail that day,

For a three hour tour

A three hour tour.


The weather started getting rough,

The tiny ship was tossed.

If not for the courage of the fearless crew

The Minnow would be lost.

The Minnow would be lost.


The ship set ground on the shore

Of this uncharted desert isle

With Gilligan,

The Skipper too.

The millionaire and his wife,

The movie star,

The professor and Mary Ann,

Here on Gilligan's Isle.



So this is the tale of our castaways,

They're here for a long, long time.

They'll have to make the best of things,

It's an uphill climb.


The first mate and his Skipper, too,

Will do their very best,

To make the others comfortable

In the tropic island nest.


No phone, no lights, no motor car,

Not a single luxury

Like Robinson Crusoe

It's primitive as can be.


So join us here each week my friends,

You're sure to get a smile,

From seven stranded castaways

Here on Gilligan's Isle!
