Theme Song

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

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

We pillage, we plunder, we rifle and loot,
Set up me hearties, no show.
We kidnap and ravage and rhyme "loot" and "foot",
Set up me hearties, no show.

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