a theme:

(anything to do with the fairy tale - e.g., "rats", "Hamelin", "legend")
drummer   (as in "piper and drummer")
(anything to do with pipe or flute playing - e.g., "bag piper", "pipe organ",
sand      (as in "sandpiper"; also species "peep", "knot", "sanderling")
(anything to do with sandpipers or birds - e.g., "shore", "footprint",
(anything to do with Piper airplanes - e.g., "Cub", "Saratoga")
peter     (as in "Peter Piper picked a pack of pickled peppers")
pepper    (plant of the "piperaceae" taxonomic order; also "piperine")
(anything to do with water pipes and plumbing - e.g., "pipeline", "steam
pay       (as in "pay the piper")
