Theme Song

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

Foe show, foe show, a pirate's life for me.

We pillage, we plunder, we button and zip,
Throw up me hearties, foe show.
We kidnap and ravage and might break a hip,
Throw up me hearties, foe show.

Foe show, foe show, a pirate's life for me.
