Theme Song

The Pirates of California theme song is often misrepresented. It begins:

Jo jo, jo jo, a pirate's life for me.

We pillage, we plunder, we run and hide,
Lick up me hearties, jo jo.
We kidnap and ravage and commit suicide,
Lick up me hearties, jo jo.

Jo jo, jo jo, a pirate's life for me.
