Mack the Knife Lyrics Louis Armstrong


Louis Armstrong - Mack the Knife Songtext

Oh, the shark, has pretty teeth, dear....and he shows them pearly white
Just a jackknife has MacHeath, babe.....and he keeps it, out of sight
When that shark bites with his teeth, dear....scarlet billows start to spread
Just a gloved hand, has MacHeath, babe..and he never shows a single drop of red

On the sidewalk...Sunday morning, commin' down...lies a body oozin' life
Someone's sneakin' 'round the corner...could that someone be Mack the Knife?

(instrumental break)

There's a tugboat....down by the river.....with a cement bag, hangin' down
Oh, the cement's just for weight, dear...five'll get ya ten old Macky's back in town
Ole Louie Miller disappeared, babe...after he withdrew all his cash
Now MacHeath spends like a sailor...could it be our boy's...done somethin' rash?

There's Jenny Diver, and Sukey Tawdry..Miss Lotte Lenya, and ole Lucy Brown
Oh, the line forms on the right, babe.....now that Macky's back in town

I said that line forms on the right, babe.....now that Macky's back in town.
