Theme Song

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

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

We pillage, we plunder, we port and encamp,
Kick up me hearties, bo bo.
We kidnap and ravage and carry a lamp,
Kick up me hearties, bo bo.

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