Theme Song

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

Cocoa, cocoa, a pirate's life for me.

We pillage, we plunder, we defend and resist,
Toss up me hearties, cocoa.
We kidnap and ravage and don't see the dentist,
Toss up me hearties, cocoa.

Cocoa, cocoa, a pirate's life for me.
