Cue Sheet

OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Basic

Allemande that corner, come home and dosado
Join hands and circle left you know
You circle round the land, then go left allemande
Grand old right & left, touchin' every little hand
Meet that lady with a dosado once around your maid
Allemande that corner, come back and promenade
Oh the line forms on the right, girls
Old Mack is back in town


FIGURE    C4, unknown progression

The head two couples do a right & left thru, then you rollaway
Star thru and dosado the outside two I say
Curlique, scoot back
Boys run around a girl, do a right & left thru
Turn a girl around, slide thru and the corner swing
Swing that corner lady and promenade the ring
Oh the line forms on the right, girls
Old 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.
