Theme Song

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

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

We pillage, we plunder, we strangle and garrot,
Toss up me hearties, oh ho.
We kidnap and ravage and sew stuff and wear it,
Toss up me hearties, oh ho.

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