Waltzing Matilda - by Banjo Patterson Waltzing Matilda - by Harry Nathan
Oh there once was a swagman camped in the billabongs Once a jolly swagman camp'd by a billabong
Under the shade of a Coolibah tree Under the shade of a Coolibah tree
And he sang as he looked at the old billy boiling And he sang as he sat and waited till his billy boiled
Who'll come a waltzing Matilda with me You'll come a waltzing Matilda with me

Who'll come a-waltzing Matilda my darling Waltzing Matilda, Matilda my darling
Who'll come a-waltzing Matilda with me You'll come a-waltzing Matilda with me
Waltzing Matilda and leading a waterbag And he sang as he sat and waited til his billy boiled
Who'll come a-waltzing Matilda with me You'll come a-waltzing Matilda with me

Up came the jumbuck to drink at the waterhole Down came a jumbuck to drink at the billabong
Up jumped the swagman and grabbed him in glee Up jumped the swagman and grabbed him with glee
And he sang as he put hime away in the tuckerbag And he sang as he shoved the jumbuck in his tuckerbag
You'll come a-waltzing Matilda with me You'll come a-waltzing Matilda with me

Who'll come a-waltzing Matilda my darling Waltzing Matilda, Matilda my darling
Who'll come a-waltzing Matilda with me You'll come a-waltzing Matilda with me
Waltzing Matilda and leading a waterbag And he sang as he sat and waited til his billy boiled
Who'll come a-waltzing Matilda with me You'll come a-waltzing Matilda with me

Up came the squatter a-riding his thoroughbred Down came a squatter mounted on a thoroughbred
Up came policemen one two three Down came troopers one two three
Whose is the jumbuck you've got in the tuckerbag? Whose is the jumbuck you've got in the tuckerbag?
You'll come a-waltzing Matilda with me You'll come a-waltzing Matilda with me

Who'll come a-waltzing Matilda my darling Waltzing Matilda, Matilda my darling
Who'll come a-waltzing Matilda with me You'll come a-waltzing Matilda with me
Waltzing Matilda and leading a waterbag And he sang as he sat and waited til his billy boiled
Who'll come a-waltzing Matilda with me You'll come a-waltzing Matilda with me

Up sprang the swagman and jumped in the waterhole Up jumped the swagman, sprang into the billabong
Drowning himself by the Coolibah Drowning himself neath the Coolibah tree
And his voice can be heard as it sings in the billabongs And his ghost may be heard as you walk around the billabong
Who'll come a-waltzing Matilda with me. You'll come a-waltzing Matilda with me.

Waltzing Matilda – by Marie Cowan
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
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 watched and waited til his billy boiled
You'll come a-waltzing Matilda with me

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 tuckerbag
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 watched and waited til his billy boiled
You'll come a-waltzing Matilda with me

Up rode the squatter mounted on his thoroughbred
Down came troopers one two three
Whose that jumbuck you've got in the tuckerbag?
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 watched and waited til his billy boiled
You'll come a-waltzing Matilda with me

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