Louis Armstrong – Mack The Knife lyrics

Man - there goes Mack the Knife) (Horn

Solo) Oh

the, shark has pretty teeth dear, And
he shows them pearly, white Just
a jackknife has MacHeath dear, And
he keeps it out of sight When

the shark bites with his teeth dear, Scarlet
billows start to spread Fancy
gloves though wears, MacHeath dear, So
there’s not a trace mmm, of red On

the sidewalk Sunday, mornin' baby, Lies
a body oozin'; life Someone
sneakin' around the corner Is
this someone Mack, the Knife Mm?

from, a tugboat by, the river A
cement bag's drooppin' down Yeah
the, cement's just for the weight dear, Bet
you Mack he's back, in town Looky

here Louie Miller disappeared, dear, After
drawing out his cash And
MacHeath spends like a sailor Did
our boy do something rash Sukey?

Tawdry Jenny, Diver Lotte
Lenya Sweet, Lucy Brown Oh
the, line forms on the right dears, Now
that Mack he's back, in town Take
it Satch
