MANGO WALK

Mi brudder did a tell mi say y`u go Mango Walk,
    Y`u go Mango Walk,
    Y`u go Mango Walk,
Mi brudder did a tell mi say y`u go Mango Walk,
    An` tief all de Number `leben.
Tell mi, Joe, do tell me fe true,
    Do tell me fe true,
    Do tell me,
Y`u nebba go to no Mango Walk
An` nebba tief Number `leben!

A warra dat y`u peakin` Lilly lub o` mi heart,
    Lilly lub o` mi heart,
    Lilly lub o` mi heart,
Y`u brudder did a tell y`u say mi go Mango Walk
    An` tief all de Number `leben,
An` y`u mean to say
Mi drop o` sunshine
Dat y`u really belieb dat liard,
Ah nebba go to no Mango Walk
An` nebba tief Number `lebben.
