Oh, the shark, babe, has such teeth, dear
And it shows them pearly whites
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
Fancy gloves wears old Macheath, babe
So there's never, never a trace of red
Now on the sidewalk, sunny morning
Lies a body just oozin' life
And someone's sneakin' 'round the corner
Could that someone be oh Mack the Knife?
There's a tugboat down by the river don'tcha know
Where a cement bag's just a'droopin' on down
Oh that cement is just, it's there for the weight, dear
Five'll get ya ten old Mack he's back in town
Now d'ja 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 boy's done somethin' rash?
Now Jenny Diver, Sukey Tawdry
Oooh Miss Lotte Lenya and old Lucy Brown
Oh the line forms on the right, babe
Now that Macky's back in town.
Aah I said Jenny Diver, Sukey Tawdry
Look out to Miss Lotte Lenya and old Lucy Brown
Yes, that line forms on the right, babe
Now that Macky's back in town
Look out old Macky is back!
