Description

Theme Song

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

Go go, go go, a pirate's life for me.

We pillage, we plunder, we dig through and root,
Toss up me hearties, go go.
We kidnap and ravage and ate eye of newt,
Toss up me hearties, go go.

Go go, go go, a pirate's life for me.
