Description

Theme Song

The Pirates of Downtown Disney theme song is often heard at frat parties. It begins:

No ho, no ho, a pirate's life for me.

We pillage, we plunder, we grimace and glower,
Kick up me hearties, no ho.
We kidnap and ravage and press nice flower,
Kick up me hearties, no ho.

No ho, no ho, a pirate's life for me.
