The Waltzing Matilda Collection

 

             "WALTZING MATILDA"               

Painting No.1:  Once a jolly swagman camped by a billabong
                      Under the shade of a coolibah tree,
                      And he sang as he watched and waited till his billy boiled:
                      "Who'll come a-waltzing Matilda, with me?"

Painting No.2:  Waltzing Matilda, waltzing Matilda
                      You'll come a-waltzing Matilda, with me
                      And he sang as he watched and waited till his billy boiled:
                      "You'll come a-waltzing Matilda, with me."

Painting No.3:  Down came a jumbuck to drink at that billabong.
                      Up jumped the swagman and grabbed him with glee.
                      And he sang as he shoved 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 shoved that jumbuck in his tucker bag:
                     "You'll come a-waltzing Matilda, with me."

Painting No.4:  Up rode the squatter, mounted on his thoroughbred.
                      Down came the troopers, one, two, and three.
                      "Whose is that jumbuck you've got in your tucker bag?
                      You'll come a-waltzing Matilda, with me."

Painting No.5   Waltzing Matilda, waltzing Matilda
                      "You'll come a-waltzing Matilda, with me",
                      "Whose is that jumbuck you've got in your tucker bag?
                      You'll come a-waltzing Matilda, with me."

Painting No. 6:  Up jumped the swagman and sprang into the billabong.
                       "You'll never take me alive!" said he
                       And his ghost may be heard as you pass by that billabong:
                       "Who'll come a-waltzing Matilda, with me?"

                       Waltzing Matilda, waltzing Matilda
                       "You'll come a-waltzing Matilda, with me",
                       And his ghost may be heard as you pass by that billabong:
                       "Who'll come a-waltzing Matilda, with me?"
