Performer: Bobby Darin
Capo 1

Oh, the [C]shark, babe, has such [Dm]teeth, dear
And it [G7]shows them pearly [C]white
Just a [Am]jackknife has old Mac[Dm]Heath, babe
And he [G7]keeps it, ah, out of [C]sight

Ya know when that [C]shark bites with his [Dm]teeth, babe
Scarlet [G7]billows start to [C]spread
Fancy [Am]gloves, oh, wears old Mac[Dm]Heath, babe
So there's [G7]never, never a trace of [C]red  

Now on the [C]sidewalk, huh, huh,
whoo sunny [Dm]morning, un huh
Lies a [G7]body just oozin' [C]life, eek
And someone's [Am]sneakin' 'round the [Dm]corner
Could that [G7]someone be Mack the [C]Knife?

There's a [C]tugboat, huh, huh, down by the [Dm]river dontcha know
Where a [G7]cement bag's just a'drooppin' on [C]down
Oh, that [Am]cement is just, it's there for the [Dm]weight, dear
Five'll get ya ten old [G7]Macky's back in [C]town

Now d'ja [C]hear 'bout Louie [Dm]Miller? He disap[G7]peared, babe
After drawin' out all his hard-earned [C]cash
And now [Am]MacHeath spends just like a [Dm]sailor
Could it [G7]be our boy's done somethin' [C]rash?

Now that [G7]Macky's back in [C]town

Capo 1

Fancy gloves, oh, wears old MacHeath, babe
So there's never, never a trace of red

Now on the sidewalk, huh, huh,
