Other songs were work songs, or sea shanties , which were sung by the sailors as they performed various ship tasks like hauling ropes or cleaning the deck. These songs were sung in sync with their movements and helped to set a pace and alleviate some of the boredom that came from performing these monotonous tasks day after day. This song was usually sung at the end of a voyage after a ship had docked at the port.

However, the reality was different and in it pirate life and exploits were often much different than the modern written, visual and interactive media likes to portray it. One of the myths that is present in almost every modern retelling of pirate lifestyle is that they enjoyed singing pirate songs and sea shanties. This is simply not true, or at least in the sense that their singing was no different than on the ship crews of any other ships during their time. As historians are concerned, organized singing of sea shanties by the maritime crews simply did not happen during 17th and 18th century, but such activities gain big popularity both on sea and in media during 19th centuries when several writers started to include songs they heard by American ship crews who embraced songs they heard by the US dock workers who were often African American slaves. Those songs were described simply as work songs that accompanied organized events such as raising of an anchor, working on sails or other types of labor. As such, these songs did not differ much from the songs sang by work crews on land. Several centuries after, sea songs started appearing on the American merchant vessels some decades before the start of the American Civil War —

A sea shanty , chantey , or chanty is a type of work song that was once commonly sung to accompany labor on board large merchant sailing vessels. The term shanty most accurately refers to a specific style of work song belonging to this historical repertoire. However, in recent, popular usage, the scope of its definition is sometimes expanded to admit a wider range of repertoire and characteristics, or to refer to a "maritime work song" in general. Of uncertain etymological origin, the word shanty emerged in the midth century in reference to an appreciably distinct genre of work song, developed especially in American-style merchant vessels that had come to prominence in the decades prior to the American Civil War. Shanties had antecedents in the working chants of British and other national maritime traditions, such as those sung while manually loading vessels with cotton in ports of the southern United States. Shanty repertoire borrowed from the contemporary popular music enjoyed by sailors, including minstrel music , popular marches , and land-based folk songs , which were then adapted to suit musical forms matching the various labor tasks required to operate a sailing ship. Such tasks, which usually required a coordinated group effort in either a pulling or pushing action, included weighing anchor and setting sail. The shanty genre was typified by flexible lyrical forms, which in practice provided for much improvisation and the ability to lengthen or shorten a song to match the circumstances.
