Once a jolly swagman sat beside a billabong,
Under the shade of a coolibah tree,
And he sang as he sat and waited while his billy boiled
You’ll come a-Waltzing Matilda, with me

Waltzing Matilda, Waltzing Matilda
You’ll come a-Waltzing Matilda, with me
And he sang as he sat and waited while his billy boiled,
you’ll come a-Waltzing Matilda, with me

Down came a jumbuck to drink from the billabong,
Up jumped the swagman and grabbed him with glee,
And he sang as he stuffed that jumbuck in his tucker bag,
you’ll come a-Waltzing Matilda, with me

Waltzing Matilda, Waltzing Matilda
you’ll come a-Waltzing Matilda, with me
and he sang as he stuffed that jumbuck in his tucker bag,
You’ll come a-Waltzing Matilda, with me

Up came the squatter, riding on his thoroughbred,
Down came the troopers, one, two, three,
Who’s that jolly jumbuck you’ve got in your tucker bag?
You’ll come a-Waltzing Matilda, with me.



Waltzing Matilda, Waltzing Matilda
You’ll come a-Waltzing Matilda, with me
Who’s that jolly jumbuck you’ve got in your tucker bag?
You’ll come a-Waltzing Matilda, with me.

Up went the swagman and leapt into the billabong,
You’ll never catch me alive, said he,
And you still hear him sing as you walk beside the billabong,
you’ll come a-Waltzing Matilda, with me.



Waltzing Matilda, Waltzing Matilda
You’ll come a-Waltzing Matilda, with me
and you still hear him sing as you walk beside the billabong,
You’ll come a-Waltzing Matilda, with me.
