Theme Song

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

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

We pillage, we plunder, we dirty and grime,
Jump up me hearties, oh no.
We kidnap and ravage and ask for the time,
Jump up me hearties, oh no.

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