Theme Song

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

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

We pillage, we plunder, we lay and we cluck,
Throw up me hearties, ho show.
We kidnap and ravage and root in the muck,
Throw up me hearties, ho show.

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