Theme Song

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

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

We pillage, we plunder, we strum and we pluck,
Throw up me hearties, oh yo.
We kidnap and ravage and root in the muck,
Throw up me hearties, oh yo.

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