MACK THE KNIFE  LYRICS

Oh the shark, babe
Has such teeth, dear
And he shows them
Pearly white
Just a jackknife
Has old Macheath, babe
And he keeps it
Out of sight

You know when that shark bites
With his teeth, babe
Scarlet billows
Start to spread
But fancy gloves, oh
Wears ol' Macheath, babe
So there's never, never a trace of red

Now, on the side walk,
huh, huh, huh
Sunny morning, uh huh
There lies a body just oozin' life
And someone's sneakin' around the corner
Could that someone be Mack the Knife?

There's a tugboat down by the river, dontcha know
Where a cement bag just a drooppin' on down
And that cement is just,
It's there for the weight, dear
Five'll get ya ten old Mackie's back in town

Now did ya hear about Louie Miller?
He disappeared, babe
After drawing out all his hard earned cash
And now Macheath spends like a sailor
Could it be our boy's done somethin' rash?

Now, Jenny Diver, ho, yeah
Suky Tawdry
Ooh, Miss Lotte Lenya, ooh and old Lucy Brown
yeah the line forms on the right, babe
Now that Mackie's back in town

I said, Jenny Diver, look out Suky Tawdry
Look out for Miss Lotte Lenya, and old Lucy Brown
Yes, the line forms way on the right, babe
Now that Mackie's back in town
Look out old Mackie is back!
