     C#m                       B
Just sit right back and you'll hear a tale
  C#m               B
a tale of a fateful trip
     C#m             B
That started in this tropic port
 A          B    C#m
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, the Professor 
and Mary Ann, here on Gilligan's Isle
*Closing Credits Song (Back to C#m)

Now 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 the Skipper too 
will do their very best
to make the others comfortable
in the tropic island nest

No phone, no lights no motor cars
not a single luxury
like Robinson Crusoe
as 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
