Theme Song

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

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

We pillage, we plunder, we shampoo and rinse,
Shut up me hearties, ho foe.
We kidnap and ravage and marry a prince,
Shut up me hearties, ho foe.

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