Description

"Wet men tell no stories!" -- so say the most repetitive porters ever to plunder the Caribbean, and that's the slogan for Porters of the Caribbean. Aboard your vessel you'll see the remains of porters who have lost their skin, and watch as others stop by a realistic township. Scenes include:

Theme Song

The Porters of the Caribbean theme song is often misrepresented. It begins:

Jo jo, jo jo, a porter's life for me.

We pillage, we plunder, we defend and resist,
Drink up me hearties, jo jo.
We kidnap and ravage and don't see the dentist,
Drink up me hearties, jo jo.

Jo jo, jo jo, a porter's life for me.
