Theme Song

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

Yo yo, yo yo, a pirate's life for me.

We pillage, we plunder, we poke and stab,
Bring up me hearties, yo yo.
We kidnap and ravage and don't pay our tab,
Bring up me hearties, yo yo.

Yo yo, yo yo, a pirate's life for me.
