The Inappropriate Lyrics:
Sis Kitty Dava, Oh, Suky Tawdry
Look out to Miss-a Lotte Lenya, and ol' Lucy Brown,
Oh, the line forms on the right babe,
Now that Mackie's...back in town!
Why They're Inappropriate:
I wonder whether the translation Darrin sang is anything like Brecht's original. I doubt it, since these last lines have nothing to do with the story about 'Mack' or 'Mackie' being a murderer. And does 'Lucy Brown' mean the shrewish girl in the Peanuts strip? Good Grief!
