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 strum and we pluck,
Throw up me hearties, ho show.
We kidnap and ravage and quack like a duck,
Throw up me hearties, ho show.

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