Mack The Knife  Bobby Darin

1.[C]Oh the shark bites with his [Dm]teeth dear,
And he [G7]shows them, pearly [C]white.
Just a [Am]jack-knife has old [Dm]Mack Heath babe,
And he [G7]keeps it outta [C]sight.
2. You know when that shark bites with his teeth, babe,

Scarlet [G7]billows start to [C]spread,

Fancy [Am]gloves, though, wears Mack [Dm]Heath babe,
So there's [G7]never, never a trace of [C]red.
3. Now on the [C]sidewalk, oh on Sunday [Dm]morning (don't ya know)
Lies a [G7]body, just oozin' [C]life,
Yeah, someone's [Am]sneakin' 'round the [Dm]corner,
Could that [G7]someone be Mack the [C]Knife?
4.There's a [C]tugboat down by the [Dm]river, (don't 'cha know?)
With a [G7]cement bag, just-a droopin' on [C]down.
Oh, that [Am]cement is just for the [Dm]weight, dear,
Five'll get ya [G]ten ol' M[G7]ackie's back in t[C]own.
5.Now you [C]heard about Louie Miller,
He dis[Dm]appeared, babe, after [G7]drawin' out,
All his [C]hard earned cash.
And now Mack [Am]he spends just like a [Dm]sailor,
Could it [G7]be our boy's done somethin' [C]rash?
6.Now Jenny [C]Diver, oh, Sookey [Dm]Tawdry,
Polly [G7]Peachum and old Lucy [C]Brown,
Oh the [Am]line forms on the [Dm]right, babe,
Now that old [G7]Mackie's back in [C]town.

[C]Now that old Mackie's Back!

A golden oldie from Kraziekhat!
