Description

"Wet men write nice letters containing no tales!" -- so say the most repetitive pirates ever to plunder Pirateland, and that's the byword for Pirates of Pirateland. Aboard your craft you'll see the remains of pirates who have seen their last E ticket, and watch as others fire cannons at an unsuspecting village. Scenes include:

Theme Song

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

Ho foe, ho foe, a pirate's life for me.

We pillage, we plunder, we bury and burrow,
Make up me hearties, ho foe.
We kidnap and ravage and then eat a churro,
Make up me hearties, ho foe.

Ho foe, ho foe, a pirate's life for me.
