Theme Song

The Pirates of a river theme song is often misquoted. It begins:

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

We pillage, we plunder, we run and hide,
Drink up me hearties, no tow.
We kidnap and ravage and sail with the tide,
Drink up me hearties, no tow.

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