Theme Song

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

Yo yo, yo yo, a pirate's life for me.

We pillage, we plunder, we talk and repeat,
Lick up me hearties, yo yo.
We kidnap and ravage and sit in you seat,
Lick up me hearties, yo yo.

Yo yo, yo yo, a pirate's life for me.
