Theme Song

The Pirates of New Orleans theme song is often misrepresented. It begins:

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

We pillage, we plunder, we dirty and grime,
Toss up me hearties, no tow.
We kidnap and ravage and ask for the time,
Toss up me hearties, no tow.

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