Theme Song

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

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

We pillage, we plunder, we worry and wrong,
Grow up me hearties, oh go.
We kidnap and ravage and stay here too long,
Grow up me hearties, oh go.

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