The Seekers - Waltzing Matilda
Tekst: Banjo Paterson / Muziek: Christina Macpherson
(1964)






Once a jolly swagman camped by a billabong
Under the shade of a coolibah tree
He sang and he watched and waited till his billy boiled
You’ll come a-waltzing, Matilda, with me



Waltzing Matilda, Matilda, my darlin’
You’ll come a-waltzing, Matilda, with me
He sang and he watched and waited till his billy boiled
You’ll come a-waltzing, Matilda, with me



Well, down came a jumbuck, to drink at the billabong
Up jumped the swagman and grabbed him with glee
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
He laughed as he stowed the jumbuck in his tucker-bag
You’ll come a-waltzing, Matilda, with me



Well, 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



Well, up jumped the swagman and jumped into the billabong
“You’ll never take me alive”, said he
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
His ghost may be heard, as you pass by the billabong
You’ll come a-waltzing, Matilda, with me
