Theme Song

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

Oh no, oh no, a pirate's life for me.

We pillage, we plunder, we straighten and curl,
Live up me hearties, oh no.
We kidnap and ravage and cry like a girl,
Live up me hearties, oh no.

Oh no, oh no, a pirate's life for me.
