[Excerpt from a book of sea shantys sung by sailors]

What will we do with the drunken whaler

Slice his throat with a rusty cleaver

Trivia

  • The lyrics in the journal were used in the gameplay trailer for Dishonored.
  • The soundtrack version includes more verses, including, "Shoot him in the heart with a loaded pistol."
  • The song is based on the sea shanty "Drunken Sailor," which describes ways to punish a sailor for insobriety.
  • During the DLC mission A Captain of Industry, Bundry Rothwild sings a line of the song as a parody over the Slaughterhouse's loudspeaker: (Sings) "What shall we do with a striking worker...?" (Laughs) "What shall we do with you, Miss Ames?"
  • During the Dishonored 2 mission Death to the Empress, Corvo Attano or Emily Kaldwin may sing the first verse over Dunwall's loudspeakers, provided they have eliminated the mission's target.
