Mack the Knife
Oh, the shark, babe, has such teeth, dear
And it shows them pearly white
Just a jackknife has old MacHeath, babe
And he keeps it ah out of sight.
Ya know when that shark bites, with his teeth, babe
Scarlet billows start to spread
Fancy gloves, though, wears old MacHeath, babe
So theres nevah, nevah a trace of red.
Now on the sidewalk uuh, huh whoo sunny mornin uuh, huh
Lies a body just oozin life eeek!
And someones sneakin round the corner
Could that someone be Mack the Knife?
A-theres a tugboat huh, huh, huh down by the river dontcha know
Where a cement bags just adroopin on down
Oh, that cement is just, its there for the weight, dear
Fivell get ya ten old Mackys back in town.
Now, dja hear bout Louie Miller? He disappeared, babe
After drawin out all his hard-earned cash
And now MacHeath spends just like a sailor
Could it be our boys done somethin rash?
