Music by Edwin Astley
"The Buccaneers" closing theme song #1 (used on most episodes)
" (Whistle the first few bars)
- Let's go a-rovin', a-rovin', across the ocean,
oh, let's go a-rovin', and join the buccaneer.

We'll find adventure, adventure, across the ocean,
oh we'll find adventure and join the buccanner.

He's the bravest man we know,
say "he's not"
and you'll be walkin' the plank sir.

- Let's go a-rovin', a-rovin', across the ocean,
oh, let's go a-rovin', and join the buccaneer.

The life on the ocean wave will be the only life for you and me,
to sail across the mighty sea forever.

And if we find there's danger here,
we'll whistle and cheer the buccaneer,
and we'll face the enemy together.

Let's go a-rovin', a-rovin', across the ocean,
oh, let's go a-rovin', and join the buccaneer."

Sung by Dick James
------------------------------
"The Buccaneers" closing theme song #2
(used on episode #2 "The Raiders" - possibly on others)

"A-rovin', a-rovin' is my ruin,
I'll go no more a-rovin' with you fair maid.

When I was a lad I went to sea,
mark well when I do sail.

When I was a lad I went to sea,
a ramblin' sailor born to be.

To make my money and spend it free,
and follow a-rovin' trade.

Yo-ho, roll and go, ????
the reason those pretty girls love me so.

I'm a ramblin' sailor bound to go,
a rovin' is my trade.

In the Springtime of the year,
mark well when I do sail.

In the Springtime of the year,
I skipped on board a privateer,
to follow my rovin' trade.

A-rovin', a-rovin' is my ruin,
I'll go no more a-rovin' with you fair maid."
