    Oh the shark has, pretty teeth, baby
    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, baby
    Scarlet billows start to spread
    Fancy gloves, though, wears MacHeath, dear
    So there's not, a trace of red

    On the sidewalk, Sunday morning
    Lies a body oozin' life
    Someones sneakin' 'round the corner
    Is that someone, Mack the Knife?

    From a tugboat, by the river
    A cement bags drooppin' down
    The cement's just, for the weight, dear
    Bet you Mackys back in town

    The cement's just, for the weight, dear
    Bet you Mackys back in tow-ow-own
