Theme Song

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

Toe show, toe show, a pirate's life for me.

We pillage, we plunder, we topple and hurl,
Clean up me hearties, toe show.
We kidnap and ravage and cry like a girl,
Clean up me hearties, toe show.

Toe show, toe show, a pirate's life for me.
