Description

"Dead men publish no memoirs!" -- so say the cruelest pirates ever to plunder the Great Lakes, and that's the byline for Pirates of the Great Lakes. Aboard your dinghy you'll see the remains of pirates who have seen their last E ticket, and watch as others pillage a robotic scene. Scenes include:

Theme Song

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

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

We pillage, we plunder, we strangle and garrot,
Drink up me hearties, ho ho.
We kidnap and ravage and carry a parrot,
Drink up me hearties, ho ho.

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