Theme Song

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

Toe show, toe show, a pirate's life for me.

We pillage, we plunder, we strum and we pluck,
Wash up me hearties, toe show.
We kidnap and ravage and in bed we tuck,
Wash up me hearties, toe show.

Toe show, toe show, a pirate's life for me.
