Theme Song

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

Domo, domo, a pirate's life for me.

We pillage, we plunder, we frighten and dread,
Drink up me hearties, domo.
We kidnap and ravage and wants the redhead,
Drink up me hearties, domo.

Domo, domo, a pirate's life for me.
