Theme Song

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

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

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

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