Theme Song

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

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

We pillage, we plunder, we port and encamp,
Act up me hearties, dough show.
We kidnap and ravage and carry a lamp,
Act up me hearties, dough show.

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