Theme Song

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

No go, no go, a pirate's life for me.

We pillage, we plunder, we lady and tramp,
You're up me hearties, no go.
We kidnap and ravage and carry a lamp,
You're up me hearties, no go.

No go, no go, a pirate's life for me.
