Theme Song

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

Ut oh, ut oh, a pirate's life for me.

We pillage, we plunder, we dig through and root,
Hands up me hearties, ut oh.
We kidnap and ravage and ate eye of newt,
Hands up me hearties, ut oh.

Ut oh, ut oh, a pirate's life for me.
