Theme Song

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

Oh go, oh go, a pirate's life for me.

We pillage, we plunder, we knitted and perled,
Grow up me hearties, oh go.
We kidnap and ravage and go on "small world",
Grow up me hearties, oh go.

Oh go, oh go, a pirate's life for me.
