Theme Song

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

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

We pillage, we plunder, we bug and annoy,
Make up me hearties, oh Flo.
We kidnap and ravage and act shy and coy,
Make up me hearties, oh Flo.

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