Theme Song

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

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

We pillage, we plunder, we short-change and gyp,
Lick up me hearties, oh Zoe.
We kidnap and ravage and don't give a flip,
Lick up me hearties, oh Zoe.

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