Mack The Knife

This song is by Ella Fitzgerald and appears on the album Pure Ella (1997).

"Oh the shark has pretty teeth dear
And he shows them pearly white
Just a jack-knife has Mac-heath, dear
And he keeps it out of sight
When the shark bites with his teeth, dear
Scarlet billows start to spread
Fancy gloves though wears Mac-heath, dear
So there's not a trace, not a trace of red
On the sidewalk on a Sunday morning
Lies a body oozing life
Someone's sneaking 'round that corner
Tell me could it be, could it be Mack the Knife

On a tugboat down by the river, don't you know
A cement bag's dropping down
The cement's just for the weight, dear
Bet you that cat called Mack-heath, oh Mack-heath, he's back in town

Oh Mack-heath's back in town
He's back, he's back, he's back, he's back
He's back, he's back, he's back, he's back, he's back, he's back in town
Mack-heath's back in town"
