Mack the Knife - Ella Fitzgerald (埃拉·菲茨傑拉德)

Oh the shark has pearly teeth dear

And he shows them pearly white


Just a jack knife has macheath dear

And he keeps it out of sight


Oh the shark bites with his teeth dear


Scarlet billows start to spread


Fancy gloves though wears macheath dear

So theres not not a trace of red

On a sunday sunday morning


Lies a body oozin life

Someones sneaking round the corner

Tell me could it be could it be could it be

Mack the knife


Oh whats the next chorus

To this song now

This is the one now


I don't know


But it was a swinging tune

And it's a hit tune

So we tried to do mack the knife

Ah louis miller


Oh something about cash

Yeah miller he was spending that trash

And macheath dear he spends like a sailor

Tell me tell me tell me

Could that boy do something rash

Oh bobby darin and louis armstrong

They made a record oh but they did

And now ella ella and her fellas

Were making a wreck what a wreck

Of mack the knife

Oh snookie taudry bah bah bah nop do bo de do


Bah bah bah nop do bo de do

Just a jack knife has macheath dear

And do bo bo bah bah bah nop do bo de do

So you've heard it

Yes we've swung it


And we tried to


Yes we sung it


You won't recognize it


It's a surprise hit

This tune called mack the knife

And so we leave you in berlin town

Yes we've swung old mack

We've swung old mack in town


For the darin fans

And for the louis armstrong fans too

We told you look out look out look out

Old macheaths back in town
