    "Mack the Knife [From Three Penny Opera]" Lyrics

    Jan Gelberman

    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, ah, out of sight
    Ya know when that shark bites with his teeth, babe
    Scarlet billows start to spread
    Fancy gloves, oh, wears old MacHeath, babe
    So there's never, never a trace of red

    Now on the sidewalk, huh, huh, whoo sunny morning, un 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, down by the river dontcha know
    Where a cement bag's just a'drooppin' 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, yeah, 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, whoa, Sukey Tawdry
    Look out to 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's back!!
