Theme Song

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

Jo jo, jo jo, a pirate's life for me.

We pillage, we plunder, we muck-up and mess,
Choke up me hearties, jo jo.
We kidnap and ravage and win (more or less),
Choke up me hearties, jo jo.

Jo jo, jo jo, a pirate's life for me.
