Description

"Hook-handed men say no reports!" -- 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 dinghy you'll see the stories of pirates who have lost their skin, and watch as others fail to make friends in a friendly town. Scenes include:

Theme Song

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

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

We pillage, we plunder, we shampoo and rinse,
Grow up me hearties, yo yo.
We kidnap and ravage and marry a prince,
Grow up me hearties, yo yo.

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