Mango Pickle Down River - M.I.A. with The Wilcannia Mob

Testing one
Go, one, two, three, four

Wilcannia Mob
M.I.A.
Morganics

When it's real hot, we go down the river and swim
And when we go fishing, we're catching the bream
When the river's high, we jump off the bridge
And when we get home, we play some didge

When it's real hot, we go down the river and swim
And when we go fishing, we're catching the bream
When the river's high, we jump off the bridge
And when we get home, we play some didge

They call me Wally, this is where I'm at
I wear my NRL baseball cap
Parramatta's my team if you know what I mean
To be the captain, that's my dream

My name is Keith from Wilcannia Street
I walk on stilts to read the beat
When it crawls out, I shake a leg
This is my rhyme and that's what I said

First of all I wanna say I don't really know why you act that way
My name is Maya and people always say
I act kinda strange like a dooba weh
I like fish and mango pickle
When I climb trees them feet them tickle
I'm broke this month, didn't pay rent
I had to jump town and my money's all spent (all spent)
I had to jump town and my money's all spent

When it's real hot, we go down the river and swim
And when we go fishing, we're catching the bream
When the river's high, we jump off the bridge
And when we get home, we play some didge

When it's real hot, we go down the river and swim
And when we go fishing, we're catching the bream
When the river's high, we jump off the bridge
And when we get home, we play some didge

We-we-we play some didge
We-we-we play some didge
We-we-we play some didge

Well, Colroy's here, have no fear
All you old pigs, better watch out for this bit
And I'm with the gang and I'm almost ten
I wanna be an actor like Jackie Chan

Lendal is my name, I like to do back flips
Listen to the words that come from my lips
Jump off the bridge and I'll play the didge
And when I catch a fish, I put it in the fridge

My name is Buddy, I can't stand still
Wilcannia to Dubbo to Broken Hill
I've been movin' around from town to town
And this is how I, get down!

Rode the BMX, we walked through the bush
The boys fight to ride it but I just let them push
Keith stole an egg from a lil kookoo
Kept it safe in his mouth, while he danced the jookoo jookoo

There's only one ocean that got fish left
One day we'll have to be a really good chef
And I don't mean us in the bush making meth
Boys, if you catch meth, you catch your death
When I said that Keith sneezed and had a chick
Broke the little egg in his mouth in little bits

When it's real hot, we go down the river and swim
And when we go fishing, we're catching the bream
When the river's high, we jump off the bridge
And when we get home, we play some didge

When it's real hot, we go down the river and swim
And when we go fishing, we're catching the bream
When the river's high, we jump off the bridge
And when we get home, we play some didge

When it's real hot, we go down the river and swim
And when we go fishing, we're catching the bream
When the river's high, we jump off the bridge
And when we get home, we play some didge
