Kevin Spacey - Mack The Knife

rate me

Oh, the shark, babe has such teeth, dear<br />

And it shows them pearly white<br />

Just a jackknife has old MacHeath, babe<br />

And he keeps it, ah, out of sight<br />

<br />

You know when that shark bites with his teeth, babe<br />

Scarlet billows start to spread<br />

But fancy gloves though wears old MacHeath, babe<br />

So there's never, never a trace of red, darling<br />

<br />

Let the thing swing<br />

On the sidewalk, huh, huh, who Sunday morning, uh huh<br />

Lies a body just oozin' life, eek<br />

And someone's sneakin' 'round the corner<br />

Tell me, could that someone be 'Mack The Knife'?<br />

<br />

There's a tugboat, huh, huh, down by the river don't you know?<br />

Where a cement bag's just a hangin' on down<br />

Oh, that cement is there strictly for the weight, dear<br />

Five'll get you ten old Macky's back in town<br />

<br />

Did you hear 'bout Louie Miller? He done disappeared, dear<br />

After drawin' out, feels good, all his hard earned cash<br />

And now MacHeath spends just like a sailor<br />

Could it be our boy's done something rash?<br />

Come on, come on<br />

<br />

Jenny Diver, ho, ho, ho, Sukey Tawdry<br />

Hello Miss Lotte Lenya, good evening, Lucy Brown<br />

Oh, the line forms way on the right, babe<br />

And now that Macky's back in olderly town<br />

<br />

I said, "Jenny Diver, look out, Sukey Tawdry<br />

Stay back, Lotte Lenya, move it over Lucy Brown<br />

Oh the line forms way beyond the right, babe<br />

And now that Macky's back in town"<br />

<br />

Look out, old Macky is back!
