"Mangoes" as written by and Cole Porter....
Mangos, papaya just nuts from the fire
In my house of straw I have so much more

Pie from the peach and I fix in the kitchen
Each bite is just right for your appetite

Now if you like-a the way I cook
And if you like-a the way I look
Then step inside my shady nook
And you'll find mangos and papayas, anything your heart desires.

Mangos, papayas, just nuts from the fire
The food is so good, you will wanna stay

Eat up and drink up and you'll think up
The day when we say preacher man, okay

musical break

Now if you like-a the way I cook
And if you like-a the way I look
Then step inside my shady nook
And you'll find mangos and papayas, anything your heart desires.

Mangos, papayas

    General CommentLoved this cheery song by this lovely lady for many years!

    However, 2 adjustments of posted lyrics are needed here;

    1) Mangos, papayas, CHESTNUTS from the fire.

    2) PIE FROM THE PIGEON I fix in the kitchen.

    Enjoy!
