Theme Song

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

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

We pillage, we plunder, we anger and mad,
Choke up me hearties, ho foe.
We kidnap and ravage and start a new fad,
Choke up me hearties, ho foe.

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