Description

"Skeletal men leave no reports!" -- so say the smelliest pirates ever to plunder America, and that's the byword for Pirates of America. Aboard your dinghy you'll see the bodies of pirates who have gone all boney, and watch as others fire cannons at a depopulated town. Scenes include:

Theme Song

The Pirates of America theme song is often misrepresented. It begins:

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

We pillage, we plunder, we slacker and slob,
Kick up me hearties, oh ho.
We kidnap and ravage and quit our day job,
Kick up me hearties, oh ho.

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