    Lyrics

    Once a jolly swagman camped by a billabong,
    Under the shade of a coolibah tree.
    He sang and he watched and waited 'til his billy boiled,
    "You'll come a-waltzing, Matilda, with me."
    Waltzing Matilda, Matilda, my darlin',
    You'll come a-waltzing, Matilda, with me.
    He sang and he watched and waited 'til his billy boiled,
    "You'll come a-waltzing, Matilda, with me."
    Well, down came a jumbuck to drink at the billabong;
    Up jumped the swagman and grabbed him with glee.
    He laughed as he stowed the jumbuck in his tucker-bag,
    "You'll come a-waltzing, Matilda, with me."
    Waltzing Matilda, Matilda, my darlin',
    You'll come a-waltzing, Matilda, with me.
    He laughed as he stowed the jumbuck in his tucker-bag,
    "You'll come a-waltzing, Matilda, with me."
    Well, up rode the squatter, mounted on his thoroughbred;
    Up rode the troopers -- one, two, three.

    "Where's that jolly jumbuck you've got in your tucker-bag?
    You'll come a-waltzing, Matilda, with me."
    Waltzing Matilda, Matilda, my darlin',
    You'll come a-waltzing, Matilda, with me.
    "Where's that jolly jumbuck you've got in your tucker-bag?
    You'll come a-waltzing, Matilda, with me."
    Well, up jumped the swagman and jumped into the billabong;
    "You'll never take me alive," said he.
    His ghost may be heard as you pass by the billabong,
    "You'll come a-waltzing, Matilda, with me."
    Waltzing Matilda, Matilda, my darlin',
    You'll come a-waltzing, Matilda, with me.
    His ghost may be heard as you pass by the billabong,
    "You'll come a-waltzing, Matilda, with me."
