Theme Song

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

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

We pillage, we plunder, we motor and sail,
Live up me hearties, oh Zoe.
We kidnap and ravage and dropped out of Yale,
Live up me hearties, oh Zoe.

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