Lyrics

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

When that shark bites raah with his teeth dear
Scarlet billows start to spread
Fancy gloves though, wears MacHeath dear
So there's not a, trace of red

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

A pretty widow, not yet twenty, was assaulted one dark night
Who was that girl, in her nighty, know one knows but, Macky night

Sloppy Sadie, was discovered with a knife wound up her thigh
And MacHeath strolls down on dark street, looking dreamy at the sky

And straight down by the hollow, little Suzie calls us up
Blaming that she's been assaulted "wonder what, got into her"

From a tugboat, by the river
A cement bag is drooping down
The cement's just, for the weight dear
I bet ya Macky's back in town

And some rich Lord, still is missing
Like so many, wealthy men
Mack the Knife is money kissing
Try to prove it, if you can

Yes you love him (but of course dear)
There is danger (come with may)
There are plenty rich and famous (I'll take Macky any day)

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

Just a jackknife, has MacHeath here
And he keeps it out of sight
