Theme Song

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

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

We pillage, we plunder, we defend and resist,
Clean up me hearties, oh know.
We kidnap and ravage and don't see the dentist,
Clean up me hearties, oh know.

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