Why do you want to know who his brother is?

His? Tee is a she(e). And O am just wondering if that was her brothers name or if I have mixed things up.

Gilligan was not her brother. But they are certainly related.

Gilligans Island of course.

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's aground 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.

(Ending verse)

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.

The first mate and his Skipper too

will do their very best,

to make the others comf'terble

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!
