Waltzing Matilda Lyrics

Waltzing Matilda - The Seekers

Written by:Trad/John Williamson

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 Matilde with me

Waltzing Matilde Matilde my darling

You'll come a waltzing Matilde with me

 

He sang and he watched and waited 'til his billy boiled

You'll come a waltzing Matilde 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 Matilde with me

 

Waltzing Matilde Matilde my darling

You'll come a waltzing Matilde with me

 

He laughed as he stowed the jumbuck in his tucker bag

You'll come a waltzing Matilde 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 Matilde with me

 

Waltzing Matilde Matilde my darling

You'll come a waltzing Matilde with me

 

Where's that jolly jumbuck you've got in your tucker bag

You'll come a waltzing Matilde 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 Matilde with me

 

Waltzing Matilde Matilde my darling

You'll come a waltzing Matilde with me

 

His ghost may be heard as you pass by the billabong

 

You'll come a waltzing Matilde with me
