OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSEr

Four ladies promenade on around the inside
Hey, get on back, swing and whirl your man
You've gotta join hands, circle left go moving round the ring
Allemande that corner, weave the ring
Oh, there's a tugboat, on down the river
Swing her and you promenade
Someone's sneaking round the corner
Could that someone be Mack The Knife?


FIGURE    Mainstream, corner progression

Heads square thru four hands around you do
Dosado around the corner girl
Hey, touch 1/4 then scoot back out here my friend
Boys run and do the right & left thru
Dixie style to a wave, boys cross fold
Swing the corner girl and promenade
The line forms on the right, babe
Now that Mackey's 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.
