Theme Song

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

Jo jo, jo jo, a pirate's life for me.

We pillage, we plunder, we strum and we pluck,
Act up me hearties, jo jo.
We kidnap and ravage and in bed we tuck,
Act up me hearties, jo jo.

Jo jo, jo jo, a pirate's life for me.
