The Lyrics

Dude gets stuck on an island. He's not good at this whole surviving dealie.
Isn't grea-eat
Far from grea-eat

I've become a castawa-ay
Can't quite recall how, oka-ay?
I've been here a long time
And there's the-e fact I'm eatin' slime

Survival stuff takes wo-ork
But I'm a fan of re-elaxation
Screwed as my knots we-ere
In my makeshift station
Thought I had it built right
But one big sneeze in the night, oh yeah
Made the thing fall right over
Man, I wish I'd never
Become a castawa-ay

Cause when you're a castawa-ay (ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh)
More to it than softball ma-ates (no Wilson, I'm afraid)
Those films were such a lie (castawa-a-ay)
They tricked me-e, just might end my life
I became a castawa-ay (oh yeah, oh yeah)
I first thought it would be grea-eat (foodstuffs would come my way)
But that too was a lie (a great big stinkin' lie)
Someone plea-ease, save me from this plight

Eatin' what's left on the grou-ound
Hopin' I'll get found one of these days
Cause the fruit I've fou-ound
Might poi-oison me, not great
Don't kno-ow shi-i-ite
'Bout natu-ure, ri-i-ight
Can't keep myself a garden
Of fruits quite harmless
Please save this castawa-ay

Can't remain a castawa-ay (castawa-a-ay)
Found no animals here, ma-ate (no birds or frogs here, mate)
I need meat in my life (I need red flesh to bite)
Though I ca-an't start a fi-ire, shite

Oh yeah, oh yeah
My odour's not so grea-eat
Cause I'm scared of wild pi-ira-anha

Isn't grea-eat
Far from grea-eat

Life sucks as a castawa-ay (oh yeah, oh yeah)
Have to spend the whole damn da-ay (wastin' the day away)
Lookin' for cultured life (castawa-a-ay)
But so fa-ar, I cannot find shite

Castawa-ay (oh yeah, oh yeah)
Isn't grea-eat (my shorts and shirt are frayed)
Castawa-ay (don't even have a knife)
Far from grea-eat (would be ha-andy-y, right)
Castawa-ay (castaways get starvation)
Isn't grea-eat (if they're stuck in a vast, unknown nation)
Castawa-ay (castaway, no vacatio-ion)
Far from grea-eat (survivalist sure ain't my vocation)
Isn't grea-eat
Far from grea-eat
Castawa-ay (no part of this stay's pleasure)
Isn't grea-eat (hot as hell durin' the day)
Castawa-ay (yet it's so cold at night)
Far from grea-eat (makes no da-amn se-ense, right)
Castawa-ay (castaway adoration)
Isn't grea-eat (is what I won't get cause of my failin')
Castawa-ay (castaway situatio-ion)
Far from grea-eat (wish I had duct tape, would be elated)
Castawa-ay (no duct tape)

You can totally survive on an island with nothing but duct tape. Well, as long as you have an unlimited supply of the stuff. And know what you're doing. So it's not that likely.
