Description

"Strange men blog no fish!" -- so say the ugliest pirates ever to plunder the Great Lakes, and that's the saying for Pirates of the Great Lakes. Aboard your dinghy you'll see the stories of pirates who have gone all boney, and watch as others loot a defenseless seaport. Scenes include:

Theme Song

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

Cocoa, cocoa, a pirate's life for me.

We pillage, we plunder, we bury and burrow,
Wash up me hearties, cocoa.
We kidnap and ravage and then eat a churro,
Wash up me hearties, cocoa.

Cocoa, cocoa, a pirate's life for me.
