Waltzing Matilda

Once a jolly swagman camped by a billabong,
Under the shade of a Coolibah tree
And he sang as he watched and waited til his billyboiled,
Who'll come a waltzing Matilda with me.
Waltzing Matilda, waltzing Matilda,
You'll come a waltzing Matilda with me.
He sang as he watched and waited til his billy boiled,
You'll come a waltzing Matilda with me.
 
Down came a jumbuck to drink from that billabong,
Up jumped the swagman and grabbed him with glee.
He sang as he stowed that jumbuck in his tuckerbag,
You'll come a waltzing Matilda with me.
Waltzing Matilda, waltzing Matilda,
You'll come a waltzing Matilda with me.
He sang as he stowed that jumbuck in his tuckerbag,
You'll come a waltzing Matilda with me.
 
Down came the squatter mounted on a thoroughbred,
Down came policemen, one, two, three.
Whose that jolly jumbuck you've got in your tuckerbag.
You'll come a waltzing matilda with me.
Waltzing Matilda, waltzing Matilda,
You'll come a waltzing Matilda with me.
Whose that jolly jumbuck you've got in your tuckerbag.
You'll come a waltzing matilda with me.
 
Now the swagman he upped, and leapt into the billabong,
You'll never catch me alive, said he.
And his ghost may be heared if you pass by that billabong,
Who'll come a waltzing matilda with me.
Waltzing Matilda, waltzing Matilda,
You'll come a waltzing Matilda with me.
And his ghost may be heared if you pass by that billabong,
Who'll come a waltzing matilda with me.
