This is ETIQUETTE by W S Gilbert and can be found THE BAB BALLADS.
It tells the story of Peter Gray and Somers:
These passengers, by reason of their clinging to a mast,
Upon a desert island were eventually cast
They hunted for their meals as Alexander Selkirk used,
But they couldn't chat together - they had not been introduced.
