Theme Song

The Pirates of the Afterlife theme song is often sung aloud. It begins:

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

We pillage, we plunder, we rifle and loot,
Put up me hearties, no sew.
We kidnap and ravage and don't give a hoot,
Put up me hearties, no sew.

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