Description

"Mute men repeat no secrets!" -- so say the ugliest 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 sung aloud. It begins:

No show, no show, a pirate's life for me.

We pillage, we plunder, we dirty and grime,
Grow up me hearties, no show.
We kidnap and ravage and beg for a dime,
Grow up me hearties, no show.

No show, no show, a pirate's life for me.
