Theme Song

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

Ho show, ho show, a pirate's life for me.

We pillage, we plunder, we grimace and glower,
Wash up me hearties, ho show.
We kidnap and ravage and press nice flower,
Wash up me hearties, ho show.

Ho show, ho show, a pirate's life for me.
