Go Mango Walk

 "Happiness in a Mango Walk" by Mallica "Kapo" Reynolds
 
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.
 
Mango Walk 

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. 
 
Chorus

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.
