Theme Song

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

Ho ho, ho ho, a pirate's life for me.

We pillage, we plunder, we bury and burrow,
Use up me hearties, ho ho.
We kidnap and ravage and then eat a churro,
Use up me hearties, ho ho.

Ho ho, ho ho, a pirate's life for me.
