Mango Walk

cho: My brother did a-tell me that you go mango walk,
     You go mango walk, you go mango walk,
     My brother did a-tell me that you go mango walk
     And steal all the number 'leven.

Now tell me, Joe, do tell me for true,
Do tell me for true, do tell me,
That you don't go to no mango walk
And steal all the number 'leven.

I tell you, Sue, I tell you for true,
I tell you for true, I tell you
That I don't go to no mango walk
And steal all the number 'leven.

Recorded by John Langstaff on "Let's Make Music."  From Jamaica.
A "mango walk" is an orchard, and "Number Eleven" is a variety of
fruit.  RW
The tune has been a steel-band staple for at least the last
thirty-five years. I suspect that number 'leven refers to the
fruit's size, rather than it's variety. RG
