Media Room I

There are some songs that are used that aren't camp songs. Often they are what are known as "media properties"—theme songs most often, but also any song closely tied to a television or radio presence.

Gilligan's Island in its original format goes up half a step with every phrase. The most common performances remain in one key for ease of singing.

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 sailor 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.

So this our tale of castaways,
They'll be here for a long, long time,

They'll have to make the best of things,
'Cause it's an uphill climb,

The first mate and his Skipper too,

Will do their very best,

To make the others comfortable

In this tropic island nest.

No phones, no lights, no motorcars,

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!
