TITLE: Gilligan's Island (The Ballad of Gilligan's Isle)
Lyrics and Chords

[Television Theme Song]

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

/ C#m B / / / AB C#m / (/)

The Mate was a mighty sailor man
The Skipper brave and sure
Five passengers set sail that day
For a three-hour tour, a three-hour tour

/ +1 /

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

/ +1 /

The ship's aground on the shore of this
Uncharted desert isle
With Gilligan, the Skipper too
A millionaire, and his wife
A movie star
The Professor and Mary Ann
Here on Gilligan's Isle

/ Fm Eb / / Fm - Eb - / / Fm Eb / / Fm Eb Fm - /

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

/ [Back to C#m] /

The First Mate and his Skipper, too
Will do their very best
To make the others comfortable
In their tropic island nest

/ +1 /

No phones, no lights, no motor cars
Not a single luxury
Like Robinson Ca-rusoe
It's primitive as can be

/ +1 /

So join us here each week, my friends
You're sure to get a smile
From seven stranded castaways
Here on Gilligan's Isle
