Theme Song

The Pirates of the Basement theme song is often misquoted. It begins:

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

We pillage, we plunder, we worry and wrong,
Look up me hearties, oh go.
We kidnap and ravage and dance in a thong,
Look up me hearties, oh go.

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