Theme Song

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

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

We pillage, we plunder, we motor and sail,
Drink up me hearties, no show.
We kidnap and ravage and don't tell a tale,
Drink up me hearties, no show.

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