Theme Song

The Pirates of the Great Lakes theme song is often heard at frat parties. It begins:

Oh no, oh no, a pirate's life for me.

We pillage, we plunder, we murder and kill,
Meet up me hearties, oh no.
We kidnap and ravage and make out a will,
Meet up me hearties, oh no.

Oh no, oh no, a pirate's life for me.
