    Lyrics

    See the shark with teeth like razors
    You can read his open face
    And Macheath, he's got a knife, and
    In such an obvious place

    On a beautiful blue Sunday,
    See a corpse stretched in the Strand
    See a man dodge 'round the corner
    Mackie's friends will understand.

    Mr. Meier reported missing
    Like so many wealthy men:
    Mack the knife acquired his cashbox
    God alone knows how or when

    Jenny Towler, she turned up lately
    With a knife stuck through her breast
    While Macheath, he walks the embankment,
    Nonchalantly unimpressed

    And the ghastly fire in Soho,
    Seven children at a go--
    In the crowd stands Mac the knife, but
    He isn't asked, he doesn't know

    And the child bride in her nightgown,
    Whose assailants still at large
    Violated in her slumbers
    Mackie how much did you charge?

    Yes, the child bride in her nightgown
    Whose assailants still at large
    Violated in her slumbers
    Mackie how much did you charge?

    Mackie how much did you charge?
    How much did you charge?
    How much did you charge?
    How much did you charge?
    How much did you charge?
