Theme Song

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

Bo bo, bo bo, a pirate's life for me.

We pillage, we plunder, we burgles and thiefs,
Hands up me hearties, bo bo.
We kidnap and ravage and don't wash our briefs,
Hands up me hearties, bo bo.

Bo bo, bo bo, a pirate's life for me.
