Theme Song

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

No row, no row, a pirate's life for me.

We pillage, we plunder, we flambe and burn,
Bring up me hearties, no row.
We kidnap and ravage and name our ship Vern,
Bring up me hearties, no row.

No row, no row, a pirate's life for me.
