Theme Song

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

No tow, no tow, a pirate's life for me.

We pillage, we plunder, we whiplash and beat,
Feel up me hearties, no tow.
We kidnap and ravage and sit in you seat,
Feel up me hearties, no tow.

No tow, no tow, a pirate's life for me.
