Theme Song

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

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

We pillage, we plunder, we depress and sad,
Hands up me hearties, oh Flo.
We kidnap and ravage and sashay a tad,
Hands up me hearties, oh Flo.

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