Theme Song

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

Jo jo, jo jo, a pirate's life for me.

We pillage, we plunder, we talk and repeat,
Grow up me hearties, jo jo.
We kidnap and ravage and can't move our feet,
Grow up me hearties, jo jo.

Jo jo, jo jo, a pirate's life for me.
