Jesus Christ, First Officer

Gavin McLeod, known (exclusively) for his role as Cap’t Stubing on that floating oasis of love and sexual innuendo, says the theme song is really about Jesus Christ? The Huffington Post quotes him from an appearance on a Christian television show:

It’s a whole new approach to that song. I do that whenever I get to a group of believers… It’s really about, ‘Come aboard, Jesus will take care of you. There’s a new love waiting for you. A love that will never let you down.

HuffPo reports the 82 year old sitcom icon is born-again. He’s also pumping his new book, This is Your Captain Speaking.

Here are the complete lyrics.

Love, exciting and new
Come Aboard. We’re expecting you.
Love, life’s sweetest reward.
Let it flow, it floats back to you.
The Love Boat soon will be making another run
The Love Boat promises something for everyone
Set a course for adventure,
Your mind on a new romance.
Love won’t hurt anymore
It’s an open smile on a friendly shore.
Yes LOVE! It’s LOVE!
Love Boat soon will be making another run
The Love Boat promises something for everyone
Set a course for adventure,
Your mind on a new romance.
Love won’t hurt anymore
It’s an open smile on a friendly shore.
It’s LOVE! It’s LOVE! It’s LOVE!
It’s the Love Boat-ah! It’s the Love Boat-ah!

I suspect the “Boat-ah!” is an embellishment of the author at sing365.com, but who knows. Maybe Charles Fox and Paul Williams, the writers, were that flamboyant. Show your love for the show, the writers or Jesus by buying the track on iTunes.
