Theme Song

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

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

We pillage, we plunder, we farejump and ride,
Put up me hearties, oh know.
We kidnap and ravage and sail with the tide,
Put up me hearties, oh know.

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