Theme Song

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

Dough show, dough show, a pirate's life for me.

We pillage, we plunder, we sing and amuse,
Jump up me hearties, dough show.
We kidnap and ravage and wear giant shoes,
Jump up me hearties, dough show.

Dough show, dough show, a pirate's life for me.
