Theme Song

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

No Joe, no Joe, a pirate's life for me.

We pillage, we plunder, we dirty and grime,
Feel up me hearties, no Joe.
We kidnap and ravage and ask for the time,
Feel up me hearties, no Joe.

No Joe, no Joe, a pirate's life for me.
