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 straighten and curl,
Pick up me hearties, go go.
We kidnap and ravage and cry like a girl,
Pick up me hearties, go go.

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