Description

Theme Song

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

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

We pillage, we plunder, we cease and desit,
Run up me hearties, ho show.
We kidnap and ravage and don't see the dentist,
Run up me hearties, ho show.

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