    Lyrics

    When you hear he's here tonight
    We know you're gonna flip
    He's hot, he's cool, he's swinging full
    He's everything that's hip
    Small charm, sex appeal
    And the newest rocking sound
    Because the band he has
    Plays all that jazz
    Like no other band around

    My name is Mack the Knife and I'm the leader of the band
    Because I found my other life was getting out of hand
    The guns went bang, my friends would hang
    And violence I can't stand
    So I gave up all that bloodshed and formed myself a band

    Oh they used to call him Mack the Knife
    He'd cut you into bits
    People that he used to hit now rush to buy his hits
    The man that made your body cold
    The meanest guy in town
    Now plays at all the better spots
    Thanks to Lucy Brown

    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!!
