Theme Song

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

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

We pillage, we plunder, we study and learn,
Hands up me hearties, oh yo.
We kidnap and ravage and plant a nice fern,
Hands up me hearties, oh yo.

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