Billy Kaui – Gilligan's Island Theme lyrics

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 sailing 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's aground on the shore of this uncharted desert isle,
With Gilligan.....
The Skipper too.....
The Millionaire....
And his wife....
The Movie star....
The professor and Maryann....
Here on Gilligan's Isle.

So, this is the tale of our cast-aways
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 their 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 friend
you're sure to get a smile...
From 7 stranded cast-aways
here on Gilligan's Isle!!
