Lyrics

Oh, the shark, babe Has such teeth, dear And it shows them pearly white Just a jackknife Has old Mack Heath, babe And he keeps it Ah, out of sight You know when that shark bites With his teeth, babe Scarlet billows start to spread Fancy gloves, oh Wears old Mack Heath, babe So there's never Never a trace of red Now on the sidewalk, ooh Sunday morning, uh huh Lies a body just oozing life And someone's sneaking Round the corner Could that someone Be Mack the Knife There's a tugboat, huh huh Down by the river don'tcha know With a cement bag's Just a drooping on down Oh, that cement is just It's there for the weight, dear Five'll get you ten Old Macky's back in town Now d'ja hear bout Louie Miller He disappeared, babe After drawing out All his hard-earned cash
