Well the shark has pretty teeth dear
And he bares them pearly white
Just a jack-knife has MacHeath dear
And he keeps it out of sight
When the shark bites with its teeth dear
Scarlet billows start to spread
Fancy gloves wears MacHeath dear
And there’s not a trace of red
In the tugboat Sunday morning
The cement bags are dropping down
The cement bags are for show dear
MacHeath is back in town
Louis Miller disappeared dear
While drawing out his cash
And our boy well he spends like a sailor
Did our boy do something rash
Polly Peacham Sukey Diver
Liza Jennings Polly Brown
Well the queue forms to the right dear
I guess Mac is back in town
Well the queue forms to the right dear
I guess Mac is back in town
