Mack The Knife

Traditional

 C6Dm7
Oh the shark has pretty teeth, dear
 G7C6
And he shows them pearly white
 C9CDm7
Just a jack knife has MacHeath, dear
 G7C6
And he keeps it out of sight

When the shark bites with his teeth, dear
Scarlet billows start to spread
Fancy gloves though wears MacHeath, dear
So there's not a trace of red

On the sidewalk, Sunday morning
Lies a body oozing life
Someone's sneaking round the corner
Is the someone Mack the knife?

From a tug boat by the river
A cement bag's dropping down
The cement's just for the weight, dear
Bet you Mack is back in town

Louie Miller disappeared, dear
After drawing out his cash
And MacHeath spends like a sailor
Did our boy do something rash?

Sukey Tawdry, Jenny Diver
Polly Peachum, Lucy Brown
Oh the line forms on the right, dear
Now that Mack is back in town

C6 = x32210
C9 = x32330
DM7 = x00211
G7 = 320001
