Lyrics Mack the Knife

Dig man
There goes Mack The Knife
Oh the shark has pretty teeth dear
And it shows them pearly white
Just a jackknife has MacHeath dear
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 dear
So there's not a trace
Mmh of red
On the sidewalk
Sunday morning baby
Lies a body oozin' life
Someone's sneakin' around the corner
Is this someone
Mack the Knife
From a tugboat by the river a cement bag's drooppin' down
Yes the cement's just for the weight dear
Bet you Macky's back in town
Lookie here Louie Miller disappeared dear after drawin' 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
