Seekers – Waltzing Matilda lyrics

Once a jolly swagman camped by a billabong,
Under the shade of a coolibah tree.
And he sang and he watched and waited 'til his billy boiled,
"You'll come a-waltzing, Matilda, with me."

Waltzing Matilda, Matilda, my darlin',
You'll come a-waltzing, Matilda, with me.
And he sang and he watched and waited 'til his billy boiled,
"You'll come a-waltzing, Matilda, with me."

Down came a jumbuck to drink at the billabong;
Up jumped the swagman and grabbed him with glee.
And he laughed as he stowed the jumbuck in his tucker-bag,
"You'll come a-waltzing, Matilda, with me."

Waltzing Matilda, Matilda, my darlin',
You'll come a-waltzing, Matilda, with me.
And he laughed as he stowed the jumbuck in his tucker-bag,
"You'll come a-waltzing, Matilda, with me."

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, Matilda, with me."

Waltzing Matilda, Matilda, my darlin',
You'll come a-waltzing, Matilda, with me.
"Where's that jolly jumbuck you've got in your tucker-bag?
You'll come a-waltzing, Matilda, with me."

Up jumped the swagman and jumped into the billabong;
"You'll never take me alive," said he.
And his ghost may be heard as you pass by the billabong,
"You'll come a-waltzing, Matilda, with me."

Waltzing Matilda, Matilda, my darlin',
You'll come a-waltzing, Matilda, with me.
And his ghost may be heard as you pass by the billabong,
"You'll come a-waltzing, Matilda, with me."

    Children I'm swagman 101. I like pigs, horses and cows and drake. Once a jolly swagman camped by a billabong,.
    Under the shade of a coolibah tree.
    And he sang and he watched and waited 'til his billy boiled,.
    "You'll come a-waltzing, Matilda, with me."

    Waltzing Matilda, Matilda, my darlin',
    You'll come a-waltzing, Matilda, with me.
    And he sang and he watched and waited 'til his billy boiled,.
    "You'll come a-waltzing, Matilda, with me."

    Down came a jumbuck to drink at the billabong;.
    Up jumped the swagman and grabbed him with glee.
    And he laughed as he stowed the jumbuck in his tucker-bag,.
    "You'll come a-waltzing, Matilda, with me.".
