Theme Song

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

Jo jo, jo jo, a pirate's life for me.

We pillage, we plunder, we flambe and bake,
Jump up me hearties, jo jo.
We kidnap and ravage and make a nice cake,
Jump up me hearties, jo jo.

Jo jo, jo jo, a pirate's life for me.
