Description

"Strange men publish no secrets!" -- so say the smelliest pirates ever to plunder the Great Lakes, and that's the byline for Pirates of the Great Lakes. Aboard your boat you'll see the scenes of pirates who have lost their skin, and watch as others burn a seaside town. Scenes include:

Theme Song

The Pirates of the Great Lakes theme song is often heard at frat parties. It begins:

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

We pillage, we plunder, we say drat and durn,
Wake up me hearties, ho ho.
We kidnap and ravage and plant a nice fern,
Wake up me hearties, ho ho.

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