"Nice work. Maybe we should call you professor." Funny, That was my nickname in HS.

Here are the lyrics to Gilligan's Island. It is ground, not aground.

The Ballad of Gilligan's Island Lyrics by George Wyle and Sherwood Shwartz

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 sailing 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 set ground on the shore of this uncharted desert isle
With Gilligan
The Skipper too,
A millionaire and his wife,
A movie star
The Professor and Mary Ann,*
Here on Gilligan's Isle.

Full Version Continues:

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 comfortable,
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 friend,
You're sure to get a smile,
From seven stranded castaways,
Here on "Gilligan's Isle."

(*In the original version it's "and the rest".
The Professor and Mary Ann were not named)

You picked the correct answer!
The castaways were surrounded by water… but the word "water" never turned up in the lyrics!

I confused water with weather and gave up after 3 misses

I was torn between "water" and "ground". Had to sing it all in my mind, but i got the "correct" one. But isn’t it technically "aground"? “The ship’s aground..." Therefore "ground" would be correct, too.
The lyric is ‘The ship set ground on the shore of an uncharted desert isle’.

I had to sing the song in my head to get the right answer

Got it On the first try but there is a slight error. The word "ground" isn't in the song either; "aground" is. (It's one word.)
daDoctah 57 months ago
Strictly speaking, the answer "ground" should also be considered correct. The word in the song is "aground".

Did you know the theme song to Gilligan’s Island has the same melody as Amazing Grace? Try singing Amazing Grace to the melody. It will be forever stuck in your head.

It took me THREE tries to get it.
Now, I have an earworm that I'd like to toss on a deserted island.

''You picked the correct answer!'' Yeah, After 3 tries. The castaways were surrounded by water... but the word ''water'' never turned up in the lyrics! Nice work! Maybe we should call you ''Professor.''
