Mango Pickle Down River
M.I.A. Lyrics


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 and 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 and play some didge
First of all I wanna say I don't even 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
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 and 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 and play some didge

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 and 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 and play some didge

The Wilcannia Mob is a rap/hip-hop musical group of five aboriginal boys from Wilcannia, New South Wales, Australia. The group members are Wally Ebsworth, Keith Dutton, Colin "Colroy" Johnson, Lendal King, and Buddy Blair. The boys were discovered by Sydney-based guerrilla artist Morganics during his children's musical and theatre workshops which took place in Wilcannia in October 2001.

They issued a single in 2002 called "Down River" which won a Deadly Single Release of the Year award in 2003. The didgeridoo made from a gum branch by group member Colin Johnson appears in the song. "Down River" was reissued on a CD entitled All You Mob (ABC Records) which included more of their songs and others recorded in outback communities elsewhere. They made their live performance debut at Sydney's Homebake Festival in December 2002. "Down River" appeared at No.51 on Triple J's Hottest 100 Countdown for the year 2002.

The Sri Lankan-British singer-musician M.I.A. featured the boys singing "Down River" on the track "Mango Pickle Down River" on her 2007 album, Kala.

Currently watching Reggie's documentary on BBC about Wilcannia. Had to YouTube this when they talked about the song. Reggie is a great presenter/broadcaster and always remains objective. His other docs are brill too. I think a lot of people are just misunderstood and unfortunately some people stereotype. I'm happy that the people in Wilcannia are living their lives the way they want to. Ignore the hate. Love from UK

yea very insightful doc. i had no idea about that side of australia

Emma Wilson Same here. Yeah Reggies documentaries are great. Him and Louis Theroux are the only two 100% impartial Documentarians I have seen.
