Theme Song

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

Dodo, dodo, a pirate's life for me.

We pillage, we plunder, we strangle and garrot,
Act up me hearties, dodo.
We kidnap and ravage and carry a parrot,
Act up me hearties, dodo.

Dodo, dodo, a pirate's life for me.
