Bobby Darin Mack The Knife Lyrics

Last updated: 10/05/2012 01:29:05 PM

Oh, the shark, babe, has such teeth, dear
And it shows them pearly white
Just a jackknife has old MacHeath, babe
And he keeps it, out of sight
Ya know when that shark bites with his teeth, babe
Scarlet billows start to spread
Fancy gloves, THOUGH, wears old MacHeath, babe
So there's never, never a trace of red

Now on the sidewalk, huh, huh, whoo sunny mornin', uh huh
Lies a body just oozin' life, eek
And someone's sneakin'round the corner
Could that someone be Mack the Knife?

There's a tugboat, huh, huh, huh down by the river don'tcha know
WITH a cement bag just droopin' on down
Oh, that cement is just, it's there for the weight, dear
FIVE'll get ya ten old Macky'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, ho, ho, OH, Sukey Tawdry
Ooh, Miss Lotte Lenya and old Lucy Brown
Oh, the line forms on the right, babe
Now that Macky's back in town

I said Jenny Diver, wow, Sukey Tawdry
look out 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
