Moritat (Mack The Knife) Lyrics

Song Meaning
Verse 1
See the shark with teeth like razors
You can read his open face
And Macheath, he's got a knife, and
In such an obvious place
Verse 2
On a beautiful blue Sunday,
See a corpse stretched in the Strand
See a man dodge 'round the corner...
Mackie's friends will understand.
Verse 3
Mr. Meier reported missing
Like so many wealthy men:
Mack the knife acquired his cashbox
God alone knows how or when
Verse 4
Jenny Towler, she turned up lately
With a knife stuck through her breast
While Macheath, he walks the embankment,
Nonchalantly unimpressed
Verse 5
And the ghastly fire in Soho,
Seven children at a go--
In the crowd stands Mac the knife, but
He isn't asked, he doesn't know
Verse 6
And the child bride in her nightgown,
Whose assailants still at large
Violated in her slumbers
Mackie how much did you charge?
Verse 7
Yes, the child bride in her nightgown
Whose assailants still at large
Violated in her slumbers
Mackie how much did you charge?
Verse 8
Mackie how much did you charge?
How much did you charge?
How much did you charge?
How much did you charge?
How much did you charge?
