'The Ballad of Mack the Knife', original 'Die Moritat von Mackie Messer', composed by Kurt Weil and Berthold Brecht for their music drama, 'Drei Groschen Oper' (Threepenny Opera). Originally premiered in 1928, in Berlin. Countless cover versions of this song has been done. This one has a cartoon cover, that hits the point exactly! The tune gives the category 'evergreen' a new dimension, still up to date since 80 years, and never out of time.

And the shark, he has teeth
And he wears them in his face
And Macheath, he has a knife
But the knife one doesn't see ...
