Mack The Knife Lyrics by Various Artists & Various Artists

 

Mack The Knife by Various Artists & Various Artists


Oh, the shark has pretty teeth, dear
And he shows them a pearly white
Just a jackknife has MacHeath, yeah
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, yeah
So there's not a trace of red

On the sidewalk Sunday morning, baby
Lies a body oozin' life
Someone's sneakin' 'round the corner
Is the someone, Mack the Knife?

From a tugboat by the river
A cement bag's droopin' 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, somethin' rash?

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