Mack The Knife  Bobby Darin

[C6]Oh the shark bites with his [Dm7]teeth dear,
And he [G7]shows them, pearly [C6]white.
Just a [Am7]jack-knife has old [Dm7]Mack Heath babe,
And he [G7]keeps it outta [C]sight.
[C6]You know when that shark bites with his [Dm7]teeth, babe,
Scarlet [G7]billows start to [C6]spread,
Fancy [Am7]gloves, though, wears Mack [Dm7]Heath babe,
So there's [G7]never, never a trace of [C6]red.
Now on the [C6]sidewalk, oh on Sunday [Dm7]morning (don't ya know)
Lies a [G7]body, just oozin' [C6]life,
Yeah, someone's [Am7]sneakin' 'round the [Dm7]corner,
Could that [G7]someone be Mack the [C6]Knife?
There's a [C6]tugboat down by the [Dm7]river, (don't 'cha know?)
With a [G7]cement bag, just-a droopin' on [C6]down.
Oh, that [Am7]cement is just for the [Dm7]weight, dear,
Five'll get ya [G7]ten ol' Mackie's back in t[C]own.
Up 1 semitone [Ab7]
Now you [C#6]heard about Louie Miller,
He dis[Ebm7]appeared, babe, after [G#7]drawin' out,
All his [C6]hard earned cash.
And now Mack [Bbm7]he spends just like a [Ebm7]sailor,
Could it [G#7]be our boy's done somethin' [C#6]rash?
Up 1 semitone [A7]
Now Jenny [D6]Diver, oh, Sookey [Em7]Tawdry,
Polly [A7]Peachum and old Lucy [D6]Brown,
Oh the [Bm7]line forms on the [Em7]right, babe,
Now that old [A7]Mackie's back in [D6]town.

[D]Now that old Mackie's Back!
