Theme Song

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

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

We pillage, we plunder, we dirty and grime,
Meet up me hearties, ho show.
We kidnap and ravage and beg for a dime,
Meet up me hearties, ho show.

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