Theme Song

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

Dough show, dough show, a pirate's life for me.

We pillage, we plunder, we straighten and curl,

We kidnap and ravage and cry like a girl,
You're up me hearties, dough show.

Dough show, dough show, a pirate's life for me.
