No, I don't speak German very well and neither did the tons of artists who covered this song.
Lotte Lenya, Louis Armstrong, Bobby Darin, Frank Sinatra, etal have all performed "Mac the Knife (from The Three Penny Opera). It is interesting to see how music has changed and evolved over the years.
Who performed the best cover of Mac the Knife?.......Or what are some songs you like with multiple covers and who performed the music the best?
Post script: Die Dreigroschenoper is a Bertolt Brecht and Kurt Weill adaption of the 1728 English play the The Beggar's Opera.
