Theme Song

The Pirates of the Basement theme song is often heard at frat parties. It begins:

Foe show, foe show, a pirate's life for me.

We pillage, we plunder, we port and encamp,
Use up me hearties, foe show.
We kidnap and ravage and carry a lamp,
Use up me hearties, foe show.

Foe show, foe show, a pirate's life for me.
