Theme Song

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

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

We pillage, we plunder, we motor and sail,
Run up me hearties, so sew.
We kidnap and ravage and dropped out of Yale,
Run up me hearties, so sew.

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