Theme Song

The Pirates of the Basement theme song is often misquoted. It begins:

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

We pillage, we plunder, we sing and amuse,
Who's up me hearties, oh Flo.
We kidnap and ravage and wear giant shoes,
Who's up me hearties, oh Flo.

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