LYRICS

Intro

Mango...Oh Mango!
Mango...Oh Mango!
Mango...Oh Mango!
Mango...Oh Mango!

My Sweetness!
My Love!
My Sweetness!

Verse 1

Yes the woman sweet like a sweet mango
(Julie from Trinbago)
Man the woman sweet
from her head to toe
Frankly speaking I can't deny
Mere words can't describe
How I feel inside
Gonna love you girl til the day I die

Woman you thrill me when I'm holding you
(Julie from Trinbago)
Sometimes loss for words
don't know what to do
All I'm saying is I need you
Always in my life
Me and you so right
What a joy to love you girl day and night.

Chorus

In the band...She there with me
My woman...She jam on me
Pan so sweet...She there with me
Carnival...We party on the street

DJ play...She there with me
On J’Ouvert...She jam on me
In the fete...She there with me
Bacchanal... We wukkin up a sweat

Verse 2

Lime in Port of Spain for Panorama
(Julie from Trinbago)
Skinner Park, Tobago, man all over
Everlasting love realized
Yes I love her vibes
So real, no disguise
In this game of love, some living a lie

Expression of love for her overflow
(Julie from Trinbago)
You do that to me woman don't you know
Things about you that dazzle me
Her anatomy
Personality
Excited about her it's really crazy

Chorus (x2)

Alston Jack, a native from the isle of Tobago, has been passionate about the steeldrum since he was 9 years old, when he became a member of the Tobago All Stars Steel Orchestra.

Seeking a greater challenge, the double second panist became a member of Renegades Steel Orchestra in 1967, but remained with the band for only one season before moving to cross-town rivals, Desperadoes.

As a member of Desperadoes Steel Orchestra, Alston Jack was able to tour many places with them including New York city where he stayed and made his second home.

Jack’s pan compositions have been featured on the soundtracks of Fatal Attraction, Working Girl and NBC’s daytime soap opera Another World.  He has also appeared on the Cosby Show and Another World. He has arranged for bands in New York such as Harlem All Stars, Moods Pan Groove, Metro, Women in Steel, Tropicans and Pantonic.
