Description

"Deceased men say no memoirs!" -- so say the vilest pirates ever to plunder the Great Lakes, and that's the byline for Pirates of the Great Lakes. Aboard your canoe you'll see the images of pirates who have met their maker, and watch as others pass through an unwelcoming village. Scenes include:

Theme Song

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

No no, no no, a pirate's life for me.

We pillage, we plunder, we worry and wrong,
Drink up me hearties, no no.
We kidnap and ravage and stay here too long,
Drink up me hearties, no no.

No no, no no, a pirate's life for me.
