Description

"Ignorant men retell no reports!" -- so say the vilest pirates ever to plunder the Spanish-American War, and that's the byline for Pirates of the Spanish-American War.

Theme Song

The Pirates of the Spanish-American War theme song is often misrepresented. It begins:

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

We pillage, we plunder, we dirty and grime,
Feel up me hearties, ho foe.
We kidnap and ravage and beg for a dime,
Feel up me hearties, ho foe.

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