Theme Song

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

Toe show, toe show, a pirate's life for me.

We pillage, we plunder, we sing and amuse,
Live up me hearties, toe show.
We kidnap and ravage and then take a snooze,
Live up me hearties, toe show.

Toe show, toe show, a pirate's life for me.
