Description

"Animatronic men leave no reports!" -- so say the most skeletal pirates ever to plunder Africa, and that's the motto for Pirates of Africa. Aboard your canoe you'll see the remains of pirates who have met their maker, and watch as others violate several local laws in a semi-fictional town. Scenes include:

Theme Song

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

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

We pillage, we plunder, we knitted and perled,
Wash up me hearties, oh yo.
We kidnap and ravage and go on "small world",
Wash up me hearties, oh yo.

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