Lyrics Mack the Knife

Hey that shark has pretty teeth dear
And it shows them pearly white
Just a jackknife has Mac Heath dear
And he keeps it way out of sight
When that shark bites with his teeth dear
Scarlet billows they begin to spread
Fancy white gloves has Mac Heath dear
So there's never never a trace of red
On a sidewalk oh one sunday morning
Lies a body oozing life
Someone's sneaking around that corner
Could that someone perhaps
Could that someone perhaps per chance be Mack the Knife per chance be Mack the Knife
From a tugboat on the river going slow
A cement bag is dropping down
You know that cement is for the weight dear
You can make a large bet ah that bums in town
Yeah he's in town
My man Louie Miller he split the scene babe
After drawing' out all the bread from his stash
And now Mac Heath spends like a sailor
Do you suppose this guy he did something a rash
Olde Satchmo Louis Armstrong
Bobby Darin
Ah they did this song nice
This song nice lady Ella too lady Ella too
They all sang it
Sang it with so much feeling with so much feeling
That old blue eyes here ain't gonna add anything new
Oh yes you do
But with this big fat band jumping behind me
Swinging hard Jack
That's Jimmy Frank
I know I can't loose
When I tell you all about Mack the Knife babe
All about Mack the Knife babe
It's an offer
It's an offer you can never refuse you can never refuse
We've got Patrick Williams
Bill Miller playin' that piano
And this wonderful great big band bringin' up the rear
All of these bad cats
All of these bad cats in this band now in this band now
Ah they make the greatest sounds you ever gonna hear
Oh Sukey Tawdry
Oh Sukey Tawdry
Jenny Diver
Jenny Diver
Polly Peaches
I know her well
Miss Lulu Brown
Miss Lulu Brown
Yeah the line forms on the right dear
Now that Mack he
Oh Mack he yeah that bum is back oh that bum he's back
And I'm gonna tell you what
I think that you should do
What should I do
You better lock your door and call the law
Because Mack he's
Because Mack he's he's come back to town
Get under the bed hide go to the country any place
Look out old Mack is back
Any where he's gonna get ya
