Lyrics: Oh the shark, babe, got such teeth, dear
And he shows them pearly white
Just a jackknife has Macheath, babe
And he keeps it outta sight

You know when that shark bites with his teeth, dear
Scarlet billows start to spread
Fancy gloves, though, has ol' Macheath, dear
So there's never a trace of red

Now, on the sidewalk, on Sunday morning
Lies a body just oozing life
And someone's sneakin' around the corner
Could that someone be Mack the Knife?

Oh, Jenny Diver, Suky Tawdry
Miss Lotte Lenya and ol' Lucy Brown
Oh, the line forms on the right, babe
Now that Mackie yeah is back in town
Album containing this track: (None)
