Theme Song

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

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

We pillage, we plunder, we deceive and fake,
Act up me hearties, no Poe.
We kidnap and ravage and jump in a lake,
Act up me hearties, no Poe.

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