Sea shanties (chantey, or chanty) were a type of folk song. … Sailors, pirates and fishermen used sea shanties as work songs, typically sung on ships. These songs were used to keep the rhythm during work, to make work more pleasant and to keep up motivation, especially during their long spells at sea.
Do you listen to music or sing songs when you have work to do? What makes the time go quickly? I listen to disco. 🎶❤️🕺🏻
