Mack the Knife Lyrics Bobby Darin


Bobby Darin - Mack the Knife Songtext

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

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

On the sidewalk Sunday morning
Lies a body just oozing life
Someone's sneaking 'round the corner
Could that someone be Mack the Knife?

There's some tugboat down by the river (don't you know)
With Aa cement bag's just dropping down
The cement's just, it's just for the weight dear
Bet you Mackie's back in town

Now did you hear about Louie Miller, he disappeared, babe
After drawing out all his honour cash
And now MacHeath spends like a sailor
Could it be, our boy done something rash?

Jenny Diver, Sukey Tawdry
Polly Peachum, Lucy Brown
Oh the line forms on the right babe
Now that Mackie's back in town
