Description

"Ignorant men get no memoirs!" -- so say the smelliest pirates ever to plunder the Basement, and that's the saying for Pirates of the Basement. Aboard your rowboat you'll see the remains of pirates who have gone to Davey Jones, and watch as others stop by a robotic town. Scenes include:

Theme Song

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

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

We pillage, we plunder, we bury and burrow,
Toss up me hearties, oh Zoe.
We kidnap and ravage and then eat a churro,
Toss up me hearties, oh Zoe.

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