Theme Song

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

Bo bo, bo bo, a pirate's life for me.

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

Bo bo, bo bo, a pirate's life for me.
