Description

"Wet men retell no lies!" -- so say the least presidential pirates ever to plunder France, and that's the slogan for Pirates of France. Aboard your dinghy you'll see the remains of pirates who have met their maker, and watch as others pass through a depopulated seaport. Scenes include:

Theme Song

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

Oh yo, oh yo, a pirate's life for me.

We pillage, we plunder, we strangle and garrot,
Kick up me hearties, oh yo.
We kidnap and ravage and sew stuff and wear it,
Kick up me hearties, oh yo.

Oh yo, oh yo, a pirate's life for me.
