Description

"Peg-legged men know no lies!" -- so say the most repetitive pirates ever to plunder the Movies, and that's the slogan for Pirates of the Movies. Aboard your dinghy you'll see the representation of pirates who have met a bitter end, and watch as others violate several local laws in a seaside port. Scenes include:

Theme Song

The Pirates of the Movies theme song is often misquoted. It begins:

So sew, so sew, a pirate's life for me.

We pillage, we plunder, we engulf and devour,
Who's up me hearties, so sew.
We kidnap and ravage and don't take a shower,
Who's up me hearties, so sew.

So sew, so sew, a pirate's life for me.
