Theme Song

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

Dough show, dough show, a pirate's life for me.

We pillage, we plunder, we topple and hurl,
Kick up me hearties, dough show.
We kidnap and ravage and cry like a girl,
Kick up me hearties, dough show.

Dough show, dough show, a pirate's life for me.
