Lyrics: Last time the song was the 1950s English translation of Mack the Knife from The Threepenny Opera, as sung (and lyrically slightly mangled) by Bobby Darin in 1958 -- spotted by [livejournal.com profile] threeoranges (hi!), [livejournal.com profile] lareinenoire, and [livejournal.com profile] maple_clef.

A bit more modern this time:

Let me put you in the picture
Let me show you what I mean
The messiah is my sister
Ain't no king man, she's my queen
(1990s)
