Description

"Peg-legged men tell no tales!" -- so say the ugliest pirates ever to plunder America, and that's the byword for Pirates of America. Aboard your yacht you'll see the stories of pirates who have met their maker, and watch as others pillage a defenseless town. Scenes include:

Theme Song

The Pirates of America theme song is often sung aloud. It begins:

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

We pillage, we plunder, we shovel and rake,
Wake up me hearties, jo jo.
We kidnap and ravage and jump in a lake,
Wake up me hearties, jo jo.

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