Mango Walk is a Jamaican folk song that has been performed by steele bands for many years.
My favorite version of this song was recorded by John Langstaff on his
"Songs for Singing Children" album. As far as I can find out "mango walk"
refers to a mango orchard, and "Number Eleven" is either a type of mango or a size.
But no matter which explanation is correct, the song is just fun to sing.
Chorus: 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.
