Cabinfever

"Cabin Fever" is a song from Muppet Treasure Island.

When the wind drops, and the Hispaniola begins to drift, the crew go stir crazy out of boredom. The human pirate twosome, Calico Jerry and Easy Pete, are the first to succumb to cabin fever and the rest of the crew quickly follow suit. Some of the lead characters, including Squire Trelawney and Gonzo, dress up in Spanish-style costumes and dance around the ship playing maracas. Some crew members also dress up as cowboys and goatherds.

Lyrics

Calico Jerry: I've got cabin fever!
Easy Pete: I've got it too!

Muppets: CABIN FEVER!

I got cabin fever it's burning in my brain
I've got cabin fever it's driving me insane
We got cabin fever, we're flipping our bandanas
Been stuck at sea so long we have simply gone bananas

Ariba!
Chica chica boom
A chica chica boom boom chic
Chica chica boom
A chica chica boom boom chic

We got cabin fever we've lost what sense we had
We got cabin fever, we're all going mad

[Heard only in the soundtrack version]
My sanity is hanging by a thread
Since we're going nowhere I've gone out of my head
We were sailing sailing over the bounding main
And now we're not! Ha ha heh!

Grab your partner by the ears
Lash him to the wheel
Do-si-do step on his toe
Listen to him squeal
Allemande left, allemande right
It's time to sail or sink
Swing your partner over the side
Drop him in the drink

We got cabin fever
No ifs, ands, or buts
We're disoriented
And demented
And a little nuts

Ach du lieber Volkswagen car
(Yodel-lay-ee-hoo)
Sauerkraut and wienerschnitzel
Und the wunder bar
(Yodel-lay-ee-hoo)

Men: We were sailing, sailing the wind was on our side
Real Old Tom: And then it died

Muppets: I've got cabin fever
I think I've lost my grip
I'd like to get my hands on
Whoever wrote this script
Si!

Angel Marie: I was floating 'neath a tropic moon
And dreaming of a blue lagoon
Now I'm crazy as a loon

Everyone: Cabin fever has ravaged all aboard
This once proud vessel has become a floating psycho ward
We were sailing, sailing headed who knows where
And now though we're all here
We're not all there

Cabin fever!
AAHHH!!
