Theme Song

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

No show, no show, a pirate's life for me.

We pillage, we plunder, we frighten and dread,
Set up me hearties, no show.
We kidnap and ravage and wants the redhead,
Set up me hearties, no show.

No show, no show, a pirate's life for me.
