Theme Song

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

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

We pillage, we plunder, we gossip and gab,
Run up me hearties, ho show.
We kidnap and ravage and don't pay our tab,
Run up me hearties, ho show.

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