Theme Song

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

Jo jo, jo jo, a pirate's life for me.

We pillage, we plunder, we dirty and grime,
Clean up me hearties, jo jo.
We kidnap and ravage and beg for a dime,
Clean up me hearties, jo jo.

Jo jo, jo jo, a pirate's life for me.
