Well the shark has pretty teeth, dear
And he shows them pearly white.
But MacHeath, dear, is a sailor
And he keeps them out of sight.
Ha, huh, huh.

You know he keeps them out of sight, hmm yeah.
They're white, white, white,
White, white, white,
White, white, white, yeah.

    General CommentThis song was written by the famous writing team Brecht/Veill. I've heard a live version somewhere with the lyrics to this song and the music to Alabama Song. It's interesting.

    General CommentI have NEVER heard The Doors perform this song, but the lyrics as transcribed here look like the way Jim would sing it. They're white, white, white, yeah.

    The original is Die Moritat von Mackie Messer from The Threepenny Opera as per octopuseyes. By Kurt Weill with lyrics by Bertolt Brecht.
