Waltzing Matilda

Once a jolly swagman (traveler)
Sat beside the billabong (lake)
Under the shade of the coolibah tree
And he sang as he sat
And waited by the billabong (lake)
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 by the billabong
You’ll come a waltzing Matilda
With me

Down came a jumbuck (sheep)
To drink beside the billabong (lake)
Up jumped the swagman (traveler)
And seized him with glee
And he sang as he tucked
That jumbuck in his tuckerbag (backpack)
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 by the billabong
You’ll come a waltzing Matilda
With me

Once a jolly traveler
Sat beside the clear blue lake
Under the shade of the tall, tall tree
And he sang as he sat
And waited by the clear blue lake
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 by the billabong
You’ll come a waltzing Matilda
With me
