Theme Song

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

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

We pillage, we plunder, we lay and we cluck,
Act up me hearties, oh woah.
We kidnap and ravage and eggs we do suck,
Act up me hearties, oh woah.

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