Theme Song

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

Oh no, oh no, a pirate's life for me.

We pillage, we plunder, we knitted and perled,
Run up me hearties, oh no.
We kidnap and ravage and go on "small world",
Run up me hearties, oh no.

Oh no, oh no, a pirate's life for me.
