Theme Song

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

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

We pillage, we plunder, we farejump and ride,
Shut up me hearties, oh know.
We kidnap and ravage and commit suicide,
Shut up me hearties, oh know.

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