Yuh is ah Trini | "Mango Tree"

"Yeah ahh, ohhhh oh lard", omg 'fuss' I loved mango season in Trinidad! Mango Vert (long mango), Splash, Calabash, Rose for chow, and of course Julie and Starch mango. Well, well, well, even though I love to suck ah good ripe mango I wonder what Ziggy Rankin had in mind when he sang "Mango Tree"?

This looks like a case of, 'if the preacher eh pick it I will' and it doesn't matter if it green or 'pammer', ripe as intended by nature or just 'force ripe'... "She Nah care, she wants everything... suck the mango dong to de bone"! Ziggy has the 'gyul' climbing up the mango tree in Mount Everest fashion too. Now trust me with all that climbing the result has to be starchy as in starch mango (what did you think the starch related to... watch yuh mouth eh).

Well, I know that there is a mango season but this season Ziggy singing about definitely does not have a season. In this case, it should fall in line with 'anytime in Trini time'. So if this lady in the song loves mango so much that she is willing to climb regardless of what she is wearing or if it is just the first crop on the tree... she just doesn't care because of the heat of the tropical sun and the mango looking nice - it is time to pick and eat. I forgot to mention Mango Graham', now that is a guaranteed belly full. Isn't that what she was looking for 'when she decided to climb the 'proverbial' mango tree?

Hold on now is this the story of... The Adam and Eve spin of the forbidden fruit, but in this case, I am not sure if it is the mango or the proverbial fruit of the loins we are talking about in this song. What do you think? 'Fuss ah love meh mango and that ting too' but the song is 'crazy good' just as sweet as a ripe Julie mango! Play the tune that is sweet mango music - enjoy the vibes. Trini is on the move!

The above posting was done as a part of the 'Yuh is ah Trini series'. However, after revisiting the post I decided to adjust the post and also make it a part of the music series. The attached song is now being streamed from my open drive listing instead of the YouTube link that was part of the original post.
