Theme Song

The Pirates of a river theme song is often misquoted. It begins:

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

We pillage, we plunder, we straighten and curl,
Use up me hearties, ho ho.
We kidnap and ravage and cry like a girl,
Use up me hearties, ho ho.

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