MACK THE KNIFE

Bobby Darin

Oh, the shark has pretty teeth dear
And he shows 'em pearly white
Just a jack knife has Macheath dear
And he keeps it out of sight

When that shark bites with his teeth dear
Scarlet billows begin to spread
Fancy gloves though has Macheath dear
So there's never never a trace of red

On the sidewalk one Sunday morning don't know
Lies a body just oozin' life
Someone's sneaking 'round the corner
Could that someone be Mack the Knife
From a tugboat on the river going slow
A cement bag is droping on down
You know that cement is for the weight dear
You can make a large bet Mackie's back in town
My man Louie Miller he split the scene babe
After drawing out all his cash
Now Macheath spends like a sailor
Could it be our boy's done something rash
SookieTaudry Jenny Diver
Polly Peachum and old Miss Lulu Brown
Hey the line forms on the right dear

Now that Macheath's back in town 3x
