Mack the Knife

Cdim  formed as xx1212

            D       D6       Cdim         A7           
Well, the shark has   pretty teeth dear, 

A7+5     A7       A7sus4  A7  D6
And he keeps them pearl - y white

         Bm                    Em
Just a jackknife has old MacHeath dear, 

G/B   A7sus4    A7       D      Cdim   A7
And he keeps it   out of sight.

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

Sunday morning on the sidewalk, 
Lies a body oozing life
And some one's creeping around the corner, 
Could that some one be Mack the knife?

From a tug boat on the river 
A cement bag's dropping down
The cement's just for the weight dear, 
Five'll get you ten ol' Macky's back in town

Louis Miller disappeared dear, 
After drawing all his cash
And old MacHeath spends like a sailor --
Did our boy do something rash?

Suky Tawdry, Jenny Diver, 
Look out, Miss Lotte Lenya and old Lucy Brown
Well, the line forms on the right girls, 
Now that Macky's back in town!
