Theme Song

The Pirates of the Movies theme song is often heard at frat parties. It begins:

Ho ho, ho ho, a pirate's life for me.

We pillage, we plunder, we shuffle and slog,
Wash up me hearties, ho ho.
We kidnap and ravage and write in our blog,
Wash up me hearties, ho ho.

Ho ho, ho ho, a pirate's life for me.
