FIGURE   

Head ladies chain now, go cross the floor
Four ladies chain then, grand chain four
Head couples square thru out in the middle
Face the sides, box the gnat and 1/4 in
Do a right & left thru then, two ladies chain
You chain the line then you'll keep in time then
Two ladies chain across, you turn 'em twice around
Send them back then do a dixie chain
Well the lady go left, gents go right
Left allemande, don't take all night
And do-si partner full around
Swing your corner girl go round
You'll promenade her, oh serenade her
She's so happy, you're back in town


TAG

Oh swing her Mack, you're back in town

Mack The Knife
 
 

Oh, the shark, babe, has such teeth, dear
And it shows them pearly white
Just a jackknife has old MacHeath, babe
And he keeps it, ah, out of sight.

Ya know when that shark bites, with his teeth, babe
Scarlet billows start to spread
Fancy gloves, though, wears old MacHeath, babe
So there's never, never a trace of red.

Now on the sidewalk, uuh, huh, whoa sunny mornin' uuh, huh
Lies a body just oozin' life... eeek!
And someone's sneakin' 'round the corner
Could that someone be Mack the Knife?

A-there's a tugboat, huh, huh, huh, down by the river don'tcha know
Where a cement bag's just a'droopin' on down
Oh, that cement is just, it's there for the weight, dear
Five'll get ya ten old Macky's back in town.

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

Now Jenny Diver, ho, ho, yeah, Sukey Tawdry
Ooh Miss Lotte Lenya and old Lucy Brown
Oh, the line forms on the right, babe
Now that Macky's back in town.

Aah, I said Jenny Diver, whoa, Sukey Tawdry
Look out to Miss Lotte Lenya and old Lucy Brown
Yes, that line forms on the right, babe
Now that Macky's back in town

Look out, old MacHeath is back!!

Composed by Kurt Weill.
Lyrics by Marc Blitzstein.
Recorded by Louis Armstrong (1955); Bobby Darin (1958); Ella Fitzgerald and many others.
