Description

"Peg-legged men get no recipies!" -- so say the smelliest pirates ever to plunder the deep, and that's the motto for Pirates of the deep. Aboard your craft you'll see the bodies of pirates who have met their maker, and watch as others loot an unwelcoming port. Scenes include:

Theme Song

The Pirates of the deep theme song is often heard at frat parties. It begins:

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

We pillage, we plunder, we rifle and loot,
Bring up me hearties, ho ho.
We kidnap and ravage and don't give a hoot,
Bring up me hearties, ho ho.

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