Gilligans Isle TV Theme

Song Video

Lyrics

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 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 Gilligans Isle.

Additional Version

Sunday, Monday, Happy Days,
Tuesday, Wednesday, Happy Days,
Thursday, Friday, Happy Days,
Saturday, what a day,
Rockin all week with you.
This day is ours
Won't you be mine. (Oh Happy Days)
This day is ours (Oh Happy Days)
Oh please be mine.
Hello sunshine, goodbye rain,
She's wearing my high school ring on her chain.
She's my steady, I'm her man,
I'm gonna love her all I can.
This day is ours
Won't you be mine. (Oh Happy Days)
This day is ours (Oh Happy Days)
Oh please be mine.
Gonna cruise her round the town,
Show everybody what I've found
Rock'n'roll with all my friends
Hopin' the music never ends.
Sunday, Monday, Happy Days,
Tuesday, Wednesday, Happy Days,
Thursday, Friday, Happy Days,
Saturday, what a day,
Rockin all week with you.
These Happy Days are yours and mine (oh Happy Days)
These Happy Days are yours and mine (oh Happy Days)
These Happy Days are yours and mine, These Happy Days are yours and mine, Happy Days.

Alternative Lyrics & Related Songs

After the show finishes there is another verse which goes like this. .

So this is the tale of our castaways,
they're here for a long, long time,
they'll have to make the best if things,
It's an uphill climb.

The first mate and the skipper too,
will do their very best,
to make the others comfortable,
in this tropic island nest.

No boat, no light no motor car,
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.

ORIGINAL PILOT THEME SONG

In tropical sea is the tropic port,
Vacation fun is the favorite sport,
This is the place where tourist 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 a trip they cannot 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 6-hour ride.

Tourist come, tourist go;
Tourist touring to and fro.
These five nice tourist, they take this trip,
Relaxing on deck on this little ship.

The weather is clear, and the sun is hot. (sound of thunder: kaboom)
The weather is clear? I think it is NOT!
Tourist come, tourist go;
Tourist tossing to and fro.

The captain is brave (Aye! Carumba! What a storm!)
The captain is brave, he's a fearless man,
And Gilligan help 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;
There is the Minnow upon the sand.
What happen now, will give you a smile:
The adventures of Gilligan. and the Skipper.
And the millionaire. .And Mrs. Millionaire. .
And the other tourists. on Gilligan's Isle!

(End of Pilot show).

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!

I'm looking for the French version of the show that was done, the lyrics in French, not a translation...

Why is the Happy Days Theme song attached to the Gilligan's Theme Song? I like them both but I find that odd.
