Theme Song

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

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

We pillage, we plunder, we worry and wrong,
Live up me hearties, ho ho.
We kidnap and ravage and stay here too long,
Live up me hearties, ho ho.

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