Mack The Knife
Bobby Darin


Oh the shark babe, has such teeth dear
And he shows them pearly white
Just a jackknife has ol' MacHeath babe
And he keeps it out of sight

You know when that shark bites
With his teeth babe
Scarlet billows start to spread
Fancy gloves though, wears ol' MacHeath babe
So there's never, never a trace of red

On the sidewalk, ooh Sunday morning uh-huh
Lies a body just oozing life, eek!
And someone's sneeking round the corner
Could that someone be Mack the Knife

There's a tugboat, down by the river don't you know
Where a cement bag's just drooping on down
Ooh that cement is just, it's there for the weight dear
Five will get you ten ol' Mackie's back in town

Now did you hear about Louie Miller
He disappeared babe
After drawing out, all his hard-earned cash
And now MacHeath spends just like a sailor
Could it be our boy's done something rash

Now Jenny Diver, yeah Sukey Tawdry
Ooh Miss Lotte Lenia, and ol' Lucy Brown
Oh the line forms on the right babe
Now that Mackie's back in town

I said Jenny Diver, Whoa Sukey Tawdry
Look out for Miss Lotte Lenia, and ol' Lucy Brown
Yes that line forms on the right babe
Now that Mackie's back in town
Look out ol' Mackie is back!
