OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Basic

Four ladies chain, oh turn that girl
Roll away and form a ring
Roll away and circle left for me
Left allemande and weave the ring you see
And a go, and a go, and a go
And a go and meet her with a dosado
Left allemande and promenade
Oh the line forms on the right babe
Now that Mack is back in town


FIGURE (1)    Basic, corner progression

Heads promenade go half around
Down the middle, square thru you know
Meet that pair, dosado around you go
Right and left thru, turn your girl, pass thru
You trade by and swing, swing that corner there
Left allemande and promenade
Oh yeah the line forms on the right babe
Now that Mack is back in town


FIGURE (2)    C4, corner progression

Oh heads promenade her, go half around
Down the middle, curlique and then boys run

Oh the line forms on the right babe
Now that Mack is 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.
