Theme Song

The Pirates of America theme song is often misheard. It begins:

Bo bo, bo bo, a pirate's life for me.

We pillage, we plunder, we kidnap and nab,
You're up me hearties, bo bo.
We kidnap and ravage and don't pay our tab,
You're up me hearties, bo bo.

Bo bo, bo bo, a pirate's life for me.
