Clay Aiken – Mack The Knife lyrics
Oh the shark has pretty teeth, dear
And he shows them pearly white
Just a jack knife has old Macheath, babe
And he keeps them out of sight
When the shark bites
With those teeth, dear
Scarlet billows start to spread
Fancy gloves though wears Macheath
So there's never, never a trace of red
Oh the shark has pretty teath, dear
Now the Mack is back in town.
