Theme Song

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

Go go, go go, a pirate's life for me.

We pillage, we plunder, we slacker and slob,
Open up me hearties, go go.
We kidnap and ravage and quit our day job,
Open up me hearties, go go.

Go go, go go, a pirate's life for me.
