Description

"More men tell no fish!" -- so say the vilest pirates ever to plunder America, and that's the byword for Pirates of America. Aboard your canoe you'll see the scenes of pirates who have seen their last E ticket, and watch as others incinerate an unsuspecting scene. Scenes include:

Theme Song

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

Go go, go go, a pirate's life for me.

We pillage, we plunder, we port and encamp,
Hands up me hearties, go go.
We kidnap and ravage and carry a lamp,
Hands up me hearties, go go.

Go go, go go, a pirate's life for me.
