Theme Song

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

Ut oh, ut oh, a pirate's life for me.

We pillage, we plunder, we say drat and durn,
Shut up me hearties, ut oh.
We kidnap and ravage and plant a nice fern,
Shut up me hearties, ut oh.

Ut oh, ut oh, a pirate's life for me.
