Theme Song

The Pirates of the Spanish-American War theme song is often heard at frat parties. It begins:

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

We pillage, we plunder, we murder and kill,
Toss up me hearties, oh go.
We kidnap and ravage and write with a quill,
Toss up me hearties, oh go.

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