Theme Song

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

Ho show, ho show, a pirate's life for me.

We pillage, we plunder, we strangle and garrot,
Shut up me hearties, ho show.
We kidnap and ravage and sew stuff and wear it,
Shut up me hearties, ho show.

Ho show, ho show, a pirate's life for me.
