Description

"Former men blog no tales!" -- so say the smelliest pirates ever to plunder the Great Lakes, and that's the saying for Pirates of the Great Lakes. Aboard your dinghy you'll see the images of pirates who have met their doom, and watch as others fire cannons at a depopulated port. Scenes include:

Theme Song

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

Dodo, dodo, a pirate's life for me.

We pillage, we plunder, we farejump and ride,
Wash up me hearties, dodo.
We kidnap and ravage and commit suicide,
Wash up me hearties, dodo.

Dodo, dodo, a pirate's life for me.
