Theme Song

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

Oh ho, oh ho, a pirate's life for me.

We pillage, we plunder, we motor and sail,
Drink up me hearties, oh ho.
We kidnap and ravage and dropped out of Yale,
Drink up me hearties, oh ho.

Oh ho, oh ho, a pirate's life for me.
