Mack the knife - Bobby Darin

          A          A6      Bm          Bm7
Oh, the shark babe has such  teeth  dear,
       E           E7     A       
And he shows them, pearly white.
       F#m         F#m7         Bm          Bm7
Just a jack knife, has old Mack Heath babe,
       E        E7sus4        E7     A      E7
And he keeps it               out of sight.

                   A            A6       Bm          Bm7
You know when the shark bites, with his teeth dear,
        E        E7       A        
Scarlet billows, start to spread.
      F#m            F#m7           Bm          Bm7
Fancy gloves though, wears old Mack Heath babe,
           E      E7sus4        E7         A    E7    F
So there's never,               a trace of red.


       A#       A#6    Cm        Cm7
Sunday morning, on the sidewalk,
       F            F7     A#
Lies A body, just oozing life.
               Gm        Gm7        Cm      Cm7
And some one's sneaking, around the corner,
           F       F7sus4        F7          A#     F7       F#
Could that someone               be Mack the knife?

Oh that ce- ment is just, its there for the weight dear,

Five 'll get you ten,               old Mackys’ back in town.


                               C       C6     Dm           Dm7    
Now did you hear ‘bout Louis Miller, disap- peared dear,
      G            G7                   C
After drawing out  all his hard earned cash.
             Am                 Am7     Dm      Dm7
And now Mack Heath spends, just like a sailor.
                  G   G7sus4        G7              C     G7    G#
Could it be  our boy               done something rash?


           C#          C#6   D#m    D#m7

      And he keeps it … ah … out of sight.

      So there’s nevah, nevah a trace of red.


      Now on the sidewalk … uuh, huh … whoo … sunny mornin’ … uuh, huh

      And someone’s sneakin' ‘round the corner

      Could that someone be Mack the Knife?

      Where a cement bag’s just a'droopin' on down

      Oh, that cement is just, it's there for the weight, dear

      Five'll get ya ten old Macky’s back in town.

      Now, d'ja hear ‘bout Louie Miller? He disappeared, babe
      After drawin' out all his hard-earned cash

      And now MacHeath spends just like a sailor

      Could it be our boy's done somethin' rash?


      Now … Jenny Diver … ho, ho … yeah … Sukey Tawdry       

      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 to Miss Lotte Lenya and old Lucy Brown

      Yes, that line forms on the right, babe

      Now that Macky’s back in town…

      Look out … old Macky is back!!
