Theme Song

The Pirates of the Spanish-American War theme song is often misrepresented. It begins:

Dough show, dough show, a pirate's life for me.

We pillage, we plunder, we shuffle and mince,
Live up me hearties, dough show.
We kidnap and ravage and marry a prince,
Live up me hearties, dough show.

Dough show, dough show, a pirate's life for me.
