"Animatronic men have no memories!" -- so say the most repetitive pirates ever to plunder Africa, and that's the byword for Pirates of Africa. Aboard your raft you'll see the stories of pirates who have lost their skin, and watch as others loot an unwelcoming seaport. Scenes include:

Theme Song

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

Ut oh, ut oh, a pirate's life for me.

We pillage, we plunder, we farejump and ride,
Jump up me hearties, ut oh.
We kidnap and ravage and commit suicide,
Jump up me hearties, ut oh.

Ut oh, ut oh, a pirate's life for me.
