Theme Song

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

So sew, so sew, a pirate's life for me.

We pillage, we plunder, we blow up and bomb,
Kick up me hearties, so sew.
We kidnap and ravage and go to the prom,
Kick up me hearties, so sew.

So sew, so sew, a pirate's life for me.
