Words to WALTZING MATILDA

WALTZING MATILDA

by A.B. “Banjo” Paterson

Oh there once was a swagman camped in the billabongs,
  Under the shade of a Coolibah tree;
And he sang as he looked at the old billy boiling
  "Who'll come a-waltzing Matilda with me."

Who'll come a-waltzing Matilda, my darling. Who'll come a-waltzing Matilda with me. Waltzing Matilda and leading a water-bag. Who'll come a-waltzing Matilda with me.
Up came the jumbuck to drink at the waterhole, Up jumped the swagman and grabbed him with glee; And he sang as he put him away in his tucker-bag, "Who'll come a-waltzing Matilda with me."
Who'll come a-waltzing Matilda, my darling. Who'll come a-waltzing Matilda with me. Waltzing Matilda and leading a water-bag. Who'll come a-waltzing Matilda with me.
Up came the squatter a-riding his thoroughbred; Up came the policeman - one, two, and three. "Whose is the jumbuck you've got in the tucker-bag? You'll come a-waltzing Matilda with we."
Who'll come a-waltzing Matilda, my darling. Who'll come a-waltzing Matilda with me. Waltzing Matilda and leading a water-bag. Who'll come a-waltzing Matilda with me.
Up sprang the swagman and jumped into the waterhole, Drowning himself by the Coolibah tree; And his voice can be heard as it sings in the billabongs, "Who'll come a-waltzing Matilda with me."
Who'll come a-waltzing Matilda, my darling. Who'll come a-waltzing Matilda with me. Waltzing Matilda and leading a water-bag. Who'll come a-waltzing Matilda with me.
