House of Gilligan's Isle

My sister Nan asks that, in tribute to both Bob Denver and Hurricane Katrina, we all sing "The Gilligan's Island Theme Song" to the tune of "House of New Orleans."

Make Eric Burdon and the Animals proud, sing it loud.

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 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.

So this is the tale of our castaways,
There 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 friends,
You're sure to get a smile,
From seven stranded castaways
Here on Gilligan's Isle!
