Description

Theme Song

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

Oh no, oh no, a pirate's life for me.

We pillage, we plunder, we strangle and garrot,
Run up me hearties, oh no.
We kidnap and ravage and carry a parrot,
Run up me hearties, oh no.

Oh no, oh no, a pirate's life for me.
