Bowling For Soup – Gilligans' 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 set ground on the shore
Of this uncharted desert isle
With Gilligan, the skipper too
The millionaire and his wife, the movie star
Professor and Mary Ann's
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 phones, no lights, no motor cars
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 seven stranded castaways
Here on Gilligan's isle

Yeah with Gilligan, the skipper too
The millionaire and his wife
The movie star
Professor and Mary Ann's
Here on Gilligan's isle
