Everybody sing!!.

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.


The theme to Gilligan's Island is a well known trademark of the show that was written by Sherwood Schwartz and George Wyle. Its familiar tune is easily recognizable and the lyrics are fun to sing along to.
NOTE: During the first season, "And The Rest" was sung instead of "The Professor and Mary Ann."
Now this is the tale of the castways, 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 primative as can be. So join us here each week my freinds, you're sure to get a smile, from seven stranded castways, here on "Gilligan's Isle."
Lost Pilot Theme
  
  In tropical sea is a tropic port,  
  Vacation fun is the favorite sport.  
  This is the place where the tourists flock,  
  Renting the boats at the busy dock.  
  
  Two secretaries from the U-S-A,  
  Sail on the Minnow this lovely day.  
  A high school teacher is next aboard,  
  All taking trip that they can not afford.  
  
  The next two people are millionaires,  
  They got no worries, they got no cares.  
  They climb aboard and they step inside,  
  With just enough bags for a six-hour ride.  
  
  Tourists come, tourists go,  
  Tourists touring to and fro.  
  
  These five nice tourists, they take this trip,  
  Relaxing on deck on this little ship.  
  The weather is clear and the sun is hot,  
        
  (Spoken) The weather is clear? I think it is not!  
  
  Tourists come, tourists go,  
  Tourists tossing to and fro.  
  
  The captain is brave, he's  Carrrrumba! What a storm!  
  The captain is brave, he's a fearless man,  
  And Gilligan helps him all that he can.  
  The wheel, she break and lose all control,  
  S.S. Minnow do the rock-and-roll.  
  
  The sea is now calm and the weather grand,  
  Where is the Minnow upon the sand?  
  What happen now will bring you a smile,  
  The adventures of Gilligan,    
  And the Skipper,
  And the Millionaire,
  And Mrs. Millionaire,
  And the other tourists,
  On Gilligan's Isle!
  
Closing credits song (Same tune),  
  
  We leave all our friends on this tropic shore,  
  Perhaps they will be here forevermore.  
  Maybe a rescue will set them free,  
  Tune in next week and then you will see.
