Theme Song

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

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

We pillage, we plunder, we sing and amuse,
Throw up me hearties, ho show.
We kidnap and ravage and wear giant shoes,
Throw up me hearties, ho show.

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