Theme Song

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

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

We pillage, we plunder, we strum and we pluck,
Act up me hearties, no sew.
We kidnap and ravage and eggs we do suck,
Act up me hearties, no sew.

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