6 First and second endings

First and Second Endings: If the ending of a repeated section is different each time, composers use first and second endings. Perform the first ending the first time through the music. Then perform the repeated music, skipping the 1st ending and playing the 2nd ending instead.

Listen to "Mango Walk" again, and notice how the first and second endings are used.
