Description

"Nice men tell no recipies!" -- so say the most skeletal pirates ever to plunder Lake Buena Vista, and that's the motto for Pirates of Lake Buena Vista.

Theme Song

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

So sew, so sew, a pirate's life for me.

We pillage, we plunder, we rifle and loot,
Throw up me hearties, so sew.
We kidnap and ravage and ate eye of newt,
Throw up me hearties, so sew.

So sew, so sew, a pirate's life for me.
