"Animatronic men write nice letters containing no recipies!" -- so say the least presidential pirates ever to plunder California, and that's the byline for Pirates of California.

Theme Song

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

It's a world of brigands,
A world of liars,
It's a world where drunks,
Set your town on fire,
But there's bootie to share,
Were you robbed? We don't care!,
It's a pirates' world after all!,
