Theme Song

The Pirates of the Spanish-American War theme song is often heard at frat parties. It begins:

No show, no show, a pirate's life for me.

We pillage, we plunder, we frighten and dread,
Act up me hearties, no show.
We kidnap and ravage and wants the redhead,
Act up me hearties, no show.

No show, no show, a pirate's life for me.
