Mack The Knife
[Verse 1]

        C                Dm
Oh, the shark has pretty teeth dear
       G7                C
And he shows 'em, pearly white
       Am                Dm
Just a jack knife has Macheath dear
       G7                  C
And he keeps it way out of sight

[Verse 2]

          C                    Dm
When that shark bites with his teeth, dear
        G7                C
Scarlet billows begin to spread
      Am                Dm
Fancy gloves though has Macheath dear
           G7                      C
So there's never, never a trace of red

[Verse 3]

       C                    Dm
On the sidewalk, one Sunday morning
       G7           C
Lies a body, oozin' life
          Am                  Dm
Someone's sneaking 'round the corner
           G7                  C
Could that someone be Mack the knife

[Verse 4]

       C                    Dm
From a tugboat, on the river going slow
    G7                      C
A cement bag is dropping on down
         Am                     Dm
You know that cement is for the weight dear
        G7                      C
You can make a large bet Mackie's back in town

[Verse 5]

        C                     Dm
Look at Louis Miller, he dissappeared, dear,
      G7              C
After drawing out his cash
       Am                  Dm
Now Macheath spends like a sailor
       G7                      C
Do you suppose our boy, he's done something rash...

About the artist behind Mack The Knife:

Louis[1] Armstrong[2] (4 August 1901[3] – July 6, 1971), nicknamed Satchmo[4] and Pops, was an American jazz trumpeter and singer.

Armstrong was a charismatic, innovative performer whose improvised soloing was the main influence for a fundamental change in jazz, shifting its focus from collective improvisation to the solo player and improvised soloing. One of the most famous jazz musicians of the 20th century, he was first known as a cornet player, then as a trumpet player, and toward the end of his career he was best known as a vocalist and became one of the most influential jazz singers.
