Dan Zanes – Waltzing Matilda lyrics
Once a jolly swagman camped by the Billabong
Under the shade of a Coolibah tree
He sang as he sat and waited while his billy boiled
Who'll come a waltzing Matilda with me?

Waltzing Matilda, waltzing Matilda
Who'll come a waltzing Matilda with me
He sang as he sat and waited by the Billabong
Who'll come a waltzing Matilda with me?

Along comes a jambuck to drink up at the waterhole
Up jumped the swagman and grabbed him with glee
And he said as he put the jambuck in his tucker bag
Who'll come a waltzing Matilda with me?

Waltzing Matilda, waltzing Matilda
Who'll come a waltzing Matilda with me?
And he sang as he sat and waited by the Billabong
Who'll come a waltzing Matilda with me?

Along comes a squatter, riding on a thoroughbred
Up steps the troopers, one, two, three
Where's the jolly jambuck? You've got in your tucker bag
You'll come a waltzing Matilda with me

Waltzing Matilda, waltzing Matilda
Who'll come a waltzing Matilda with me
And he sang as he sat and waited by the Billabong
Who'll come a waltzing Matilda with me?

Well, the swagman he up and jumped into the waterhole
Drowning himself by the Coolibah tree
And his ghost may be heard as it sings in the Billabong
Who'll come a waltzing Matilda with me

Waltzing Matilda, waltzing Matilda
Who'll come a waltzing Matilda with me
And he sang as he sat and waited by the Billabong
Who'll come a waltzing Matilda with me?

Who'll come a waltzing Matilda with me?
