Mack the Knife was a last chance performance sung by Ellis Wylie in the second episode of the first season of The Glee Project, Theatricality. It was originally from the Kurt Weill musical "The Three-Penny Opera," but later popularized by Bobby Darin. This was her second time in the bottom three. After this performance, Ellis was eliminated from the competition by Ryan Murphy.


Oh the shark, babe
Has such teeth, dear
And he shows them
Pearly white

Just a jack knife
Has old Mack Heath, babe
And he keeps it
Out of sight

There's a tug boat
Down by the river
Don't you know
Where a cement bag's
Just dropping on down

That cement there
It's for the weight, dear
Five'll get you ten
Old Macky's back in town

Look out old Macky's back!
