Theme Song

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

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

We pillage, we plunder, we frighten and dread,
Toss up me hearties, ho ho.
We kidnap and ravage and wants the redhead,
Toss up me hearties, ho ho.

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