Notes

*Mango Walk is an orchard
**"Number 11" is a variety of mango in Jamaica

Then there's one more verse that goes:

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 eleven.

*****

Here's the song with "orchard" in the place of "mango walk":

My brother did a tell you not to go to the orchard
Go to the orchard, go to the orchard,
My brother did a tell you not to go to the orchard,
Go to the orchard, go to the orchard,
And not to steal the number 11 (mango).
Tell me Joe, do tell me Joe,
Tell me Joe, do tell me,
Tell me Joe, do tell me Joe,
Why you steal the number 11?

My brother did a tell you not to go to the orchard
Go to the orchard, go to the orchard,
My brother did a tell you not to go to the orchard
Go to the orchard, go to the orchard,
And not steal the number 11.
Tell me Joe, do tell me Joe,
Tell me Joe, do tell me,
Tell me Joe, do tell me Joe,
Why did you steal the number 11?
