Theme Song

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

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

We pillage, we plunder, we blow up and bomb,
Meet up me hearties, oh yo.
We kidnap and ravage and go for your mom,
Meet up me hearties, oh yo.

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