Description

"Skeletal men have no stories!" -- so say the smelliest pirates ever to plunder the Spanish-American War, and that's the motto for Pirates of the Spanish-American War. Aboard your raft you'll see the bodies of pirates who have seen their last E ticket, and watch as others stop by an unwelcoming township. Scenes include:

Theme Song

The Pirates of the Spanish-American War theme song is often misquoted. It begins:

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

We pillage, we plunder, we worry and wrong,
Put up me hearties, ho show.
We kidnap and ravage and stay here too long,
Put up me hearties, ho show.

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