  • How does a man get the mangoes,
    Down from the mango tree?
    How does he get what he says so
    Down from the mango tree?

    Low-lying fruit has been shaken
    Down from the mango tree,
    Up-hanging mangoes untaken
    Still full on the mango tree.

    How does the man get the mango
    Down from the mango tree?
    How does he get what he came for
    Down from the mango tree?

    Da low one go in a hurry
    Down from the mango tree,
    Hard-to-get fruit the worry
    Up in the mango tree.
