Verse 1
Once a jolly swagman sat beside the billabong
Under the shade of a coolibah tree
And he sang as he sat and he waited by the billabong
"you'll come a-Waltzing Matilda with me?"
Verse 2
Waltzing Matilda, Waltzing Matilda
You'll come a-Waltzing Matilda with me
And he sang as he sat and he waited by the billabong
"you'll come a-Waltzing Matilda with me?"
Verse 3
Down came a jumbuck to drink beside the billabong
Up jumped the swagman and seized him with glee
And he sang as he tucked to the jumbuck in his tucker bag
"You'll come a-Waltzing Matilda with me"
Verse 4
Waltzing Matilda, Waltzing Matilda
"You'll come a-Waltzing Matilda with me"
And he sang as he tucked to the jumbuck in his tucker bag
"You'll come a-Waltzing Matilda with me"
Verse 5
Down came the stockman, riding on his thoroughbred
Down came the troopers, one, two, three
"Where's the jolly jumbuck you've got in your tucker bag?"
"You'll come a-Waltzing Matilda with me"
Verse 6
Waltzing Matilda, Waltzing Matilda
"You'll come a-Waltzing Matilda with me"
"Where's the jolly jumbuck you've got in your tucker bag?"
"You'll come a-Waltzing Matilda with me"
Verse 7
Up jumped the swagman, plunged into the billabong
"You'll never catch me alive," cried he
And his ghost may be heard as you ride beside the billabong
"You'll come a-Waltzing Matilda with me"
Verse 8
Waltzing Matilda, Waltzing Matilda
"You'll come a-Waltzing Matilda with me"
And his ghost may be heard as you ride beside the billabong
"You'll come a-Waltzing Matilda with me"
