Disclaimer: This song is for comedy's sake. Actually using knives for murder is bad... mmmkay...


When life seem to be getting you down
Once a king, but you’ve lost your crown
Just force on a smile, throw away that frown
It’s time to call on that friend

He’s there when you’ve that something to do
Won’t answer back, does what he’s told to
Keeps his mouth shut, He’ll never rat on you
I suppose I’ll introduce you to Mr Knife

Mr Knife, (Laaa da da da da daaaa etc...)
Murder’s on your mind and you need a treat
Your foes would surely love to meet

Mr Knife, (Laaa da da da da daaaa etc...)
Could poison a trifle, or just grab the rifle
But nothing’s quite as personal as Mr Knife

Trouble in a fight?
Just call Mr Knife!
“Hahaaaaa! Now you’re getting it! ;D”
