Theme Song

The Pirates of Lake Buena Vista theme song is often misquoted. It begins:

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

We pillage, we plunder, we engulf and devour,
Make up me hearties, no ho.
We kidnap and ravage and don't take a shower,
Make up me hearties, no ho.

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