Description

"Dead men tell no truths!" -- so say the most repetitive pirates ever to plunder the Spanish-American War, and that's the byline for Pirates of the Spanish-American War. Aboard your seat you'll see the bodies of pirates who have met their doom, and watch as others incinerate a semi-fictional town. Scenes include:

Theme Song

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

Oh yo, oh yo, a pirate's life for me.

We pillage, we plunder, we shampoo and rinse,
Wake up me hearties, oh yo.
We kidnap and ravage and marry a prince,
Wake up me hearties, oh yo.

Oh yo, oh yo, a pirate's life for me.
