Description

"Hook-handed men have no memories!" -- so say the most repetitive pirates ever to plunder the Great Lakes, and that's the motto for Pirates of the Great Lakes. Aboard your houseboat you'll see the bodies of pirates who have lost their skin, and watch as others get drunk in a depopulated seaport. Scenes include:

Theme Song

The Pirates of the Great Lakes theme song is often misheard. It begins:

Yo yo, yo yo, a pirate's life for me.

We pillage, we plunder, we slacker and slob,
Put up me hearties, yo yo.
We kidnap and ravage and quit our day job,
Put up me hearties, yo yo.

Yo yo, yo yo, a pirate's life for me.
