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 say out of sight
When that shark bites, with his teeth, babe
Scarlet billows start to spread
Fancy gloves, though, wears old macheath, babe
And there's never, never a trace of red
Now on the sidewalk, sunny mornin' don't you know
Lies a body trainning of red ah!
And someone's sneakin' 'round the corner
Could that someone, a boy, mack the knife?
There's a tugboat... Down by the river don'tcha know
Where a cement bag's just holdin' on down
Oh, that cement there, there for the weight, dear
Five'll get ya ten old macky's back in town
Ooh ? 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 is back!
