Theme Song

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

Toe show, toe show, a pirate's life for me.

We pillage, we plunder, we defend and resist,
Shut up me hearties, toe show.
We kidnap and ravage and don't see the dentist,
Shut up me hearties, toe show.

Toe show, toe show, a pirate's life for me.
