Description

Theme Song

The Pirates of the Sea theme song is often misrepresented. It begins:

Ho ho, ho ho, a pirate's life for me.

We pillage, we plunder, we run and hide,
Wake up me hearties, ho ho.
We kidnap and ravage and sail with the tide,
Wake up me hearties, ho ho.

Ho ho, ho ho, a pirate's life for me.
