Theme Song

The Pirates of the Basement theme song is often heard at frat parties. It begins:

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

We pillage, we plunder, we worry and wrong,
Kick up me hearties, oh yo.
We kidnap and ravage and stay here too long,
Kick up me hearties, oh yo.

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