Theme Song

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

Oh woah, oh woah, a pirate's life for me.

We pillage, we plunder, we muck-up and mess,
Lick up me hearties, oh woah.
We kidnap and ravage and put on a dress,
Lick up me hearties, oh woah.

Oh woah, oh woah, a pirate's life for me.
