Description

Theme Song

The Pirates of Anaheim theme song is often misrepresented. It begins:

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

We pillage, we plunder, we sing and amuse,
Toss up me hearties, ho ho.
We kidnap and ravage and wear giant shoes,
Toss up me hearties, ho ho.

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