Description

"Hook-handed men tell no secrets!" -- so say the ugliest pirates ever to plunder a river, and that's the byline for Pirates of a river. Aboard your craft you'll see the stories of pirates who have seen their last E ticket, and watch as others pass through a disgruntled town. Scenes include:

Theme Song

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

Foe show, foe show, a pirate's life for me.

We pillage, we plunder, we talk and repeat,
Live up me hearties, foe show.
We kidnap and ravage and sit in you seat,
Live up me hearties, foe show.

Foe show, foe show, a pirate's life for me.
