Theme Song

The Pirates of Matecumbe theme song is often heard at frat parties. It begins:

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

We pillage, we plunder, we bug and annoy,
Clean up me hearties, oh woah.
We kidnap and ravage and cry like a boy,
Clean up me hearties, oh woah.

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