“Sit right back and you’ll hear a tale,
A tale of a fateful trip.
It 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.”
– Gilligans Island theme song written by Sherwood Schwartz, November 14, 1916 July 12, 2011
