Theme Song

The Pirates of America theme song is often misheard. It begins:

Oh woah, oh woah, a pirate's life for me.

We pillage, we plunder, we straighten and curl,
Wash up me hearties, oh woah.
We kidnap and ravage and cry like a girl,
Wash up me hearties, oh woah.

Oh woah, oh woah, a pirate's life for me.
