Lyrics

Part 1

All: 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!

Uniqua: We were out at sea on a sailing ship. The rain began to rain and the wind began to whip!

Pablo: We felt the ship tip, it was going down... so we launched our lifeboat so we wouldn’t drown!

All: Castaways... we are castaways! Ahoy there! Ahoy, we are castaways... on an island at sea!

Uniqua: Just me...

Tyrone: Me...

Pablo: And me!

All: Castaways ahoy! We are castaways!

Part 2

Tyrone: In our little rubber boat, we floated all night... till we landed on a shore in the morning light.

Pablo: On a lovely little island where it’s just us three.

Uniqua: And the sun and the sand and the sky and the sea!

All: 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!

Uniqua: (speaking) A whole island, all to ourselves!

Tyrone: (speaking) We should look around!

Pablo: (speaking) Totally, come on castaways!

Uniqua: (speaking) Woohoo!

Pablo: (speaking) Hooray!

Tyrone: (speaking) Yeah!

All: Castaways... we are castaways! Ahoy there! Ahoy, we are castaways... on an island at sea!

Uniqua: Just me...

Tyrone: Me...

Pablo: And me!

All: Castaways ahoy! We are castaways.
