"This song is actually from Norway. It is often used as a warmup song for choirs, theatre groups and other places where people use their voice. In Norway we actually also have a verse four for the song. The third verse in Norwegian is Ananas (which is the Norwegian word for pineapple), so it rhymes better with bananas which is said similar in Norwegian." -Daniel Grønnesby


The Mango Song is often sung by choruses in English, Dutch, German and Spanish. It's also known as The Fruit Canon in English.
