Theme Song

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

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

We pillage, we plunder, we motor and sail,
Throw up me hearties, oh Zoe.
We kidnap and ravage and dropped out of Yale,
Throw up me hearties, oh Zoe.

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