Description

"Boring men tell no truths!" -- so say the Disneyest pirates ever to plunder the woods, and that's the slogan for Pirates of the woods. Aboard your vessel you'll see the remains of pirates who have met a bitter end, and watch as others incinerate a semi-fictional township. Scenes include:

Theme Song

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

Oh ho, oh ho, a pirate's life for me.

We pillage, we plunder, we shovel and rake,
Jump up me hearties, oh ho.
We kidnap and ravage and jump in a lake,
Jump up me hearties, oh ho.

Oh ho, oh ho, a pirate's life for me.
