The Lyrics

I'm just a cast'way of a three hour tour
Here with six other people who are trying to get free
And since we've been here I've had feelings get stirred
Social barriers broken since we're lost at sea
And there's a certain kind of trait I must live up to
And there can be no other person to know
this decree
I lust for Ginger but I love Mary Ann

A thousand blunders keep us stuck in this place
On this island uncharted, with coconut trees
A starlets wiles can lead most guys astray
But the farm girl revives me like a sweet summers breeze
But then I wonder can those girls discern my "bamboo"?
And then cold swims for me in the lagoon
while yelling
I lust for Ginger but I love Mary Ann

I lust for Ginger but I love Mary Ann

How can they understand
Visits by new people and those people
Who are always deploying....back home
And when they see this island prison
Unenlightened are those people
Who are leaving this bliss
Leaving this bliss

I'm just a wondering 'bout my romantic worth
Do those girls want a boyfriend who has lots of degrees
Or are they looking for some big manly girth
Maybe I'm too clean shaven, should I grow a goatee?
And I would like this zip code change to be our abode
'Cause this is much more fun than trotting the globe
guaranteed
I lust for Ginger but I love Mary Ann

How can they understand
Visits by new people and those people
Who are always deploying....back home
And when they see this island prison
Unenlightened are those people
Who are leaving this mirth
Leaving this mirth

Plans must be unravelled, leaving is banned
Pretending mind is feeble, blunting their plans
I lust for Ginger but I love Mary Ann
I lust for Ginger but I love Mary Ann
Rescues must be ruined, crossing up schemes
Fleeing should be illegal, dashing their dreams
I lust for Ginger but I love Mary Ann
You lust for Ginger but you love Mary Ann

I hate "Gilligan's Island," but I liked the parody and I love the title.

wow...this a knockout....i believe you speak a universal truth for men all over the world...this is one of your best ever and to a very tough song to pace as well...bravo

I love Gilligan's Island and I love this parody. Clever title and excellent pacing.

Good job on this...this was would have been a heavy contender in a recent Artistry competion (see the message board), perhaps giving Stu McArthur a run for his Jerry Springer-themed parody.

Sir, Miss Ginger was certainly delicious . . . But ~MA~ was more cute/practical . . . It's the decision of the Ages, hombre !

Fantastic job! Although, I have to swim against the tide (possibly whilst attached to a raft made out of uniform length bits of bamboo - roll eyes) - I thought Mary-Anne was a hottie but Ginger did nothing for me at all. Boop-boop-bee-do...

alvin : "Universal Truth minus one" :)

Thanks Michael (yeah, it's not exactly "Lost"), Alvin (pacing did put me through the ringer, I need a rest), Merry (a guilty pleasure for me too), Agrimorfee (thanks for even mentioning mine with Stu's, he's great!), ~G'Lust~ (speaking of ageless decisons, how about Jeannie or Samantha), Pippin, (nothing at all? but still...36-24-36!) Adagio (it's funny, during the tumultuous 60's tv was so innocent and safe. until the Smothers Brothers and Laugh-in)

Ren: Well, I guess, not 'nothing'... I think I was partly influenced by Mary-Anne always being portrayed as the plain one compared to Ginger - maybe it somehow interfered with my sense of fair play. I would happily have played with Mary-Anne's coconut cream pies anyday! Heh heh...

Wow! Thats all I can say. Wished I had thought of this one. Why pick one when you can have both?
