”Shanty for a Squad” Fortnite Lyrics & Explanation of the Meaning

05.03.2021 0 By Butcher79

Fortnite has gotten a brand-new emote Shanty for a Squad based on a viral TikTok sea shanty that recently exploded in popularity, complete with its own version of the song – and it’s safe to say that it’s almost as catchy as the original. 

If you’re a fan of the viral TikTok sea shanty trend that swept the platform in January 2021, and you’re also a fan of Fortnite, then there’s something tailor-made available in the game just for you.

Epic Games has added a new emote into the game called ‘Shanty for a Squad,’ which features a song that sounds remarkably similar to the TikTok sea shanty, made famous by user Nathan Evans. While its inclusion is certainly hilarious, it’s not that surprising.

Here is the full text of the Fortnite anthem and an explanation of some of its lines

Таблицы
[Verse 1]There once was a squad that readied up
With outfits of fancy to say what’s up
Their hopes were high for a win that day
Go, me squaddie boys, go

[Chorus]See there, the storm she come
To widdle us down and leave just one
Grab your squad quick on the run
Let’s take our dub and go

[Verse 2]The drop was hot and full of threat
It was lit up by a million sweats
The keg of slurp would pay no debt
The squaddy was spared that day (Huh!)

[Chorus]See there, the storm she come
To widdle us down and leave just one
Grab your squad quick on the run
Let’s take our dub and go

[Verse 3]The storm was closing in by now
The enemy full send now inbound
They find a way to clutch somehow
So go, me squaddie boys, go (Huh!)

[Chorus]See there the storm she come
To widdle us down and leave just one
Grab your squad quick on the run
Let’s take our dub and go

And here’s what it’s about:

It was lit up by a million sweats

A Fortnite sweat is a player who tries to show off their skill in the game, even when it is not really necessary. The term comes from the thought that these players try so hard to show off that they break a sweat.

To widdle us down and leave just one

At the end of a Fortnite match, only 1 player wins

edited: Only one player, duo, or squad can win a match in Fortnite Battle Royale.

The storm was closing in by now

The Fortnite Storm is one of the battle royale’s key ingredients, forcing players into each other’s paths as they struggle to stay within the ever-shrinking Safe Zone and remain standing at the end of the match.

Dub

The term “dub” often refers to the first sound in “W” (dub-a-yew). This “W” stands for “Win” so when people refer to “solo dub” it means they probably won a round of fortnite playing solo or as a solo player (when they queue into duos and squads)
