Theme Song

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

Big toe, big toe, a pirate's life for me.

We pillage, we plunder, we slacker and slob,
What's up me hearties, big toe.
We kidnap and ravage and quit our day job,
What's up me hearties, big toe.

Big toe, big toe, a pirate's life for me.
