Theme Song

The Pirates of the Spanish-American War theme song is often misheard. It begins:

Yo yo, yo yo, a pirate's life for me.

We pillage, we plunder, we freak out and cower,
Who's up me hearties, yo yo.
We kidnap and ravage and press nice flower,
Who's up me hearties, yo yo.

Yo yo, yo yo, a pirate's life for me.
