Theme Song

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

Ho ho, ho ho, a pirate's life for me.

We pillage, we plunder, we depress and sad,
Kick up me hearties, ho ho.
We kidnap and ravage and sashay a tad,
Kick up me hearties, ho ho.

Ho ho, ho ho, a pirate's life for me.
