Description

"Peg-legged men eat no tales!" -- so say the most skeletal pirates ever to plunder Africa, and that's the byline for Pirates of Africa. Aboard your raft you'll see the stories of pirates who have seen their last E ticket, and watch as others incinerate an unwelcoming town. Scenes include:

Theme Song

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

Cocoa, cocoa, a pirate's life for me.

We pillage, we plunder, we port and encamp,
Choke up me hearties, cocoa.
We kidnap and ravage and short when we're damp,
Choke up me hearties, cocoa.

Cocoa, cocoa, a pirate's life for me.
