The Lyrics

here's a story...sad, but true
its about a skipper and his crew
he wrecked his ship and ran aground
an unknown desert isle was found

hey hey...whoa oh oh oh oh
hey hey...whoa oh oh oh oh
hey hey...whoa oh oh oh oh...OH !
ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh

a storm was blowin...it was off the chart
they headed seaward and were torn apart
these seven people tossed by swells, its true
the castaways are a run aground crew

they miss their ship...and they're tired of this place
they're much in despair, but they keep a brave face
say that they ain't gonna cry...but they do
the castaways are a run aground crew

ohhhhhh...island is now their world
they don't know what to do
castaways are blue

oh, they'd like to travel around...yeah
they'd love to, but their boat is down
something they can't improvise
they'd go...but they might capsize

here's the moral of the story...watch the ocean's flow
it swells enough...who knows where you'll go
ask any fool who has gone askew...they'll say
castaways are a run aground grew

hey hey...whoa oh oh oh oh
hey hey...whoa oh oh oh oh
hey hey...whoa oh oh oh oh
