Theme Song

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

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

We pillage, we plunder, we motor and sail,
Lick up me hearties, ho foe.
We kidnap and ravage and look kind of pale,
Lick up me hearties, ho foe.

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