Theme Song

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

So sew, so sew, a pirate's life for me.

We pillage, we plunder, we shuffle and slog,
Make up me hearties, so sew.
We kidnap and ravage and write in our blog,
Make up me hearties, so sew.

So sew, so sew, a pirate's life for me.
