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
But fancy gloves, though, wears old MacHeath, babe
So there's never, never a trace of red
Let the thing swing
On the sidewalk, huh, huh, whoo sunny morning, un huh
Lies a body just oozin' life, eek
And someone's sneakin' 'round the corner
Tell me, 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-hangin on down
Oh, that cement is there strictly for the weight, dear
Five'll get ya ten old Macky's back in town
D'ja hear 'bout Louie Miller? He disappeared, dear
After drawin' out, feel good, all his hard-earned cash
And now MacHeath spends just like a sailor
Could it be our boy's done somethin' rash?
Come on, come on

Jenny Diver, ho, ho, ho, Sukey Tawdry
And Miss Lotte Lenya, good everning, Lucy Brown
Oh, the line forms way on the right, babe
And now that Macky's back in olderly town

I said Jenny Diver, look out, Sukey Tawdry
Stay back, Lotte Lenya, move it over Lucy Brown
Oh the line forms way on the right, babe
And now that Macky's back in town
Look out, old Macky is back!!
