Theme Song

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

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

We pillage, we plunder, we tumble and turn,
Look up me hearties, oh go.
We kidnap and ravage and plant a nice fern,
Look up me hearties, oh go.

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