Oh the shark babe, has such teeth, dear
And he shows them pearly white
Just a jack knife has old MacHeath, babe
And he keeps it out of sight

You know when the shark bites
With his teeth, babe
Scarlet billows start to spread
Fancy gloves though wears old MacHeath, babe
So there's never, never a trace of red

Now on the sidewalk, uh huh, huh
Oh, Sunday morning, uh huh
Lies a body just oozing life
Someone's sneaking round the corner
Could that someone be Mack the knife?

There’s a tug boat, uh huh, huh huh
Down by the river, don’t you know
Where a cement bag’s just a-drooping on down
Oh that cement is just, it’s there for the weight, dear
Five will get you ten ol’ Macky’s back in town

Now d’ya hear about Louis Miller
He disappeared babe
After drawing out all his hard earned cash
And now MacHeath spends just like a sailor
Could it be our boy did something rash?

Now Jenny Diver, huh huh, yeah Sookie Taudry
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, woah, Woah Sookie Taudry
Look out Miss Lotte Lenya, and old Lucy Brown
Oh the line forms on the right, babe
Now that Macky’s, back in town

Look out old Macky’s back!
