BOBBY DARIN SINGS THIS IN  Bb(A#)
==========================================================================

          Bb         Bb6     Cm          Cm7
Oh, the shark babe has such  teeth  dear, 
       F           F7     Bb
And he shows them, pearly white.
       Gm          Gm7          Cm          Cm7
Just a jack knife, has old Mack Heath babe, 
       F        F7sus4        F7     Bb     F7
And he keeps it               out of sight. 

                   Bb           Bb6      Cm          Cm7
You know when the shark bites, with his teeth dear, 
        F        F7       Bb
Scarlet billows, start to spread.
      Gm             Gm7            Cm          Cm7
Fancy gloves though, wears old Mack Heath babe, 
           F      F7sus4        F7         Bb   F7
So there's never,               a trace of red.
