Description

"Honest men leave no diaries!" -- so say the least presidential pirates ever to plunder Africa, and that's the byline for Pirates of Africa. Aboard your houseboat you'll see the stories of pirates who have met their doom, and watch as others get drunk in an unwelcoming scene. Scenes include:

Theme Song

The Pirates of Africa theme song is often misheard. It begins:

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

We pillage, we plunder, we grimace and glower,
Hands up me hearties, oh Moe.
We kidnap and ravage and press nice flower,
Hands up me hearties, oh Moe.

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