Oh, the shark, babe, has such teeth, dear
Just a jackknife has old MacHeath, babe
Ya know when that shark bites with his teeth, babe
Fancy gloves, oh, wears old MacHeath, babe

Lies a body just oozin' life, eek
Could that someone be Mack the Knife?
There's a tugboat, huh, huh, down by the river don'tcha know
Oh, that cement is for, just for the weight, dear
Now d'ja hear 'bout Louie Miller? He disappeared, babe
And now MacHeath spends just like a sailor

Ooh, Miss Lotte Lenya and old Lucy Brown
Now that Macky's back in town
I said Jenny Diver, whoa, Sukey Tawdry
Yes, that line forms on the right, babe
Look out, old Macky's back
