Theme Song

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

Oh Moe, oh Moe, a pirate's life for me.

We pillage, we plunder, we shuffle and mince,
Grow up me hearties, oh Moe.
We kidnap and ravage and marry a prince,
Grow up me hearties, oh Moe.

Oh Moe, oh Moe, a pirate's life for me.
