Description

"Mute men write nice letters containing no truths!" -- so say the most skeletal pirates ever to plunder the Great Lakes, and that's the byline for Pirates of the Great Lakes. Aboard your dinghy you'll see the bodies of pirates who have met a bitter end, and watch as others incinerate a robotic town. Scenes include:

Theme Song

The Pirates of the Great Lakes theme song is often misrepresented. It begins:

Dough show, dough show, a pirate's life for me.

We pillage, we plunder, we muck-up and mess,
Put up me hearties, dough show.
We kidnap and ravage and win (more or less),
Put up me hearties, dough show.

Dough show, dough show, a pirate's life for me.
