Theme Song

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

Ho show, ho show, a pirate's life for me.

We pillage, we plunder, we kidnap and nab,
Shut up me hearties, ho show.
We kidnap and ravage and jog away flab,
Shut up me hearties, ho show.

Ho show, ho show, a pirate's life for me.
