Theme Song

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

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

We pillage, we plunder, we depress and sad,
Make up me hearties, oh go.
We kidnap and ravage and sashay a tad,
Make up me hearties, oh go.

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