Theme Song

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

Big toe, big toe, a pirate's life for me.

We pillage, we plunder, we pop fly and lob,
Live up me hearties, big toe.
We kidnap and ravage and quit our day job,
Live up me hearties, big toe.

Big toe, big toe, a pirate's life for me.
