Theme Song

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

Oh go, oh go, a pirate's life for me.

We pillage, we plunder, we strum and we pluck,
Drink up me hearties, oh go.
We kidnap and ravage and eggs we do suck,
Drink up me hearties, oh go.

Oh go, oh go, a pirate's life for me.
