Description

"Former men blog no stories!" -- so say the cruelest pirates ever to plunder Lake Buena Vista, and that's the saying for Pirates of Lake Buena Vista. Aboard your canoe you'll see the representation of pirates who have met a bitter end, and watch as others get drunk in a semi-fictional scene. Scenes include:

Theme Song

The Pirates of Lake Buena Vista theme song is often heard at frat parties. It begins:

Ho ho, ho ho, a pirate's life for me.

We pillage, we plunder, we dirty and grime,
Clean up me hearties, ho ho.
We kidnap and ravage and beg for a dime,
Clean up me hearties, ho ho.

Ho ho, ho ho, a pirate's life for me.
