Castaways lyrics

Castaways, we are castaways, ahoy there, ahoy, we are castaways
We’re stuck where we are with no house, no car, castaways, ahoy, we are castaways

We were out at sea on a sailing ship
The rain began to rain and the wind began to whip
We felt the ship tip, it was going down
So we launched our lifeboat so we wouldn’t drown

Castaways, we are castaways, ahoy there, ahoy, we are castaways, on an island at sea
Just me

Me
And me!
Castaways, ahoy, we are castaways

In our little rubber boat, we floated all night
Till we landed on a shore in the morning light
On a lovely little island where it’s just us three
And the sun and the sand and the sky and the sea

Now we’re castaways, we are castaways, ahoy there, ahoy, we are castaways
Not a cup or a dish, eating seaweed and fish, castaways, ahoy, we are castaways
Castaways, we are castaways, ahoy there, ahoy, we are castaways on an island at sea

Just me
Me
And me
Castaways ahoy, we are castaways
