Theme Song

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

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

We pillage, we plunder, we burgles and thiefs,
Choke up me hearties, oh yo.
We kidnap and ravage and don't wash our briefs,
Choke up me hearties, oh yo.

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