Description

"Hook-handed men say no secrets!" -- so say the cruelest pirates ever to plunder the Spanish-American War, and that's the slogan for Pirates of the Spanish-American War. Aboard your rowboat you'll see the representation of pirates who have gone to Davey Jones, and watch as others fail to make friends in a jolly seaport. Scenes include:

Theme Song

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

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

We pillage, we plunder, we hop and we skip,
Kick up me hearties, ho show.
We kidnap and ravage and don't leave a tip,
Kick up me hearties, ho show.

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