I usually play with captions on and I'm somewhat surprised the lyrics for sea shanties are not appearing during the crew sing-a-longs... Is there an option that I'm missing to get these to display on screen along with the rest of the dialog?

Nope there isn't. Sad to state, I too enjoy reading what they're saying.

Only way to see lyrics is on tablet with companion app installed.

Ah, well, I missed the companion app entirely, so that's at least an acceptable, if not entirely ideal, alternative. I'll see how that works out, thanks!

I wish we were able to pick what shanty they need to sing...

Yeah, that's my only complaint with it as well. If there's a way to do it, I haven't figured it out yet.

They're all fun but some are just more fun than other ^^

Does anyone know if the shanty from AC3 is in AC4? it went something like this:
"row in the boaattt.. and roll in the ?????"
all toghether: "row in the boaattt.. and roll in the ?????"

It's a vague description I know :P

I'm adding the lyrics to the wiki so I can sing along

So far I just have the first song but will be adding more as I find them

Just have the window open on your smartphone or computer and you can sing along

Here is the song I just put in:

On the XBOX 360 right clicking on the d-pad cycles you through all the found shanties. Clicking down has Edward telling your crew to keep quiet.

I'd make them sing Randy Dandy O for hours... and hours.


Maybe days.

It's not in AC4. And it's "haul in the bowline", a bowline (pronounced "bowlin' ") is a knot used by sailors because it doesn't slip or tighten. Goes well with a sheepshank too.

I dont know how it appears on the consoles, but on the pc if you go to the animus database and select the shanties you can highlight the shanty you want and the lyrics are on the right side of the screen.

I haven't played the game yet, but I go to a shanty session every month and have lots of musician friends who play the authentic versions. You want to hear them how they're really sung? Go to cdbaby.com and search for Finn 'n Haddie. Also, the lyrics can all be found at mudcat.org in the digitrad.
