I suggest you look up traditional sea shanties. The language should be authentic, and if you have the name of the song you should be able to look up the lyrics easily enough. They're also really fun to listen to.
Someone's compiled a list of sea shanties, and sorted them by genre: http://www.jsward.com/shanty/
You should also be able to listen to most songs by looking up the name on YouTube.
I googled "best sea shanties" and was amused to discover that someone's compiled "the 10 manliest sea shanties"! They even include links to the lyrics of each song. Here's the link: http://www.artofmanliness.com/2008/09/23/the-10-manliest-sea-shanties/
