Theme Song

The Pirates of the primeval world theme song is often misquoted. It begins:

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

We pillage, we plunder, we strum and we pluck,
Jump up me hearties, oh Zoe.
We kidnap and ravage and make a quick buck,
Jump up me hearties, oh Zoe.

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