Die Moritat von Mackie Messer

I am in a group called the Canton Cabaret, and am singing the standard "Mack the Knife". While I was looking online for lyrics to print, I came across the Wikipedia entry for this song, and found out some fascinating information on it. Follow the link and read up. I especially enjoyed the litteral translation of the lyrics from German. They must have been a little too dark for 1954 America.
